A second vote on the UK’s final Brexit deal has the backing of half of Britons, a new poll indicates.

A Survation poll, which surveyed 1,003 people, showed that 497, or 50% supported “holding a referendum asking the public if they will accept or reject the deal”, while 343, or 34% said they were against.

A total of 164, or 16%, said they didn’t know if they supported it or not.

Out of the people who said they were in favour of a new referendum, 271, or 54.5% voted ‘remain’ in the June 2016 referendum, 145, or 29% had voted ‘leave’, and 74, or 15% did not vote.

Mike Smithson, a polling analyst, said that the study, which was conducted for the Mail on Sunday, was the first to record backing for a new referendum.

The study also showed that Jeremy Corbyn’s lead over the Conservative Party had risen to eight points, the highest in the previous five months.
