With under two months to go until the United Kingdom votes on its membership of the European Union, the outcome still remains somewhat unclear as polls are at odds with one another.


A poll for the Sun on Sunday found that slightly more Britons want to leave the EU than remain a member, after President Barack Obama's intervention and warning that the UK would go to the "back of the queue" in terms of striking a trade deal.

Some 46 per cent of those polled said they supported Brexit, with 43 per cent in favour of continued membership. According to the ICM survey, 11 per cent did not know.

However, a separate poll also published today for the Observer indicated the Remain camp was one percentage point ahead of the Leave camp.


And last week polling by Survation found Remain had 45 per cent of support, while Leave had just 38 per cent.

That itself came after an ORB poll found Remain ahead, but that support for Brexit had increased during Obama's visit.

At the General Election last year the pollsters were predicting a hung parliament, giving little credence to the idea that the Conservatives would win.

Bookies, meanwhile, have also been largely predicting a Remain victory on the 23 June.
