Our poll with Electoral Calculus for The Constitution Society find that Labour would increase their potential majority if they were to say that Brexit was a mistake. Labour currently has a lead of 26%, which could be 28% if our poll is correct. This is particularly the case in Red Wall constituencies.

Find Out Now interviewed 1,862 GB adults across Great Britain and a further 1,457 GB adults living in “Red Wall” seats online from 10-14 March 2023. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of all GB adults by gender, age, social grade, other demographics and past voting patterns. The sub-samples of those respondents who had a clear voting intention (excluding don’t knows and refuseds) were also weighted to be representative. Full details are given in the tables (download Excel workbook).
