Voters across the political divide are going cold on Boris Johnson's Brexit deal as its implications become clearer, a new study has found.
Leave and Remain voters have both become more likely than they were in January to say the UK has got a bad deal with the EU.
The study, by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), found that just 12 per cent of people believed Britain and got a good deal in August – a decline from 21 per cent who took the same view in January.
Opinion has hardened among remain voters from 66 per cent who now say a bad deal was procured, compared to 53 per cent in 2021. But among Leave voters, too, the balance of opinion has tilted away from approval – with Brexiteers no longer more likely to say a good deal has been had.
