More than half of voters say Brexit has failed them, new Omnisis poll reveals

As Britain marked the third anniversary of Brexit, a new Omnisis poll has revealed more than 50% of British voters think it has been a failure which has delivered no visible benefits for them.

Meanwhile, exactly half of people said they had personally felt negative impacts of leaving the European Union, whilst 53% said they felt they had been lied to by the Leave campaign.

A massive 56% of people said Brexit had been a failure, compared to just 16% who said it had been a success.

In Omnisis’ weekly Brexit sentiment tracker, the pollsters also found 62% of people would vote to re-join the European Union if there was another referendum.

Brian Cooper, Managing Director of Omnisis, said: “Brexit was sold to the British people as a means to reclaim control and independence from the European Union but, according to our latest polls, voters feel let down and that the reality of Brexit is far away from what was promised.

“We can see, through our weekly Brexit sentiment tracker, that there is a growing sense of disappointment and frustration among the public, who are perhaps realising they were misled and that their prospects are being negatively impacted."
