A second referendum remains deeply unpopular among Conservative Party members | Conservative Home


For all the hype in some parts of the press about the concept of a second referendum supposedly gaining ground, even within the Conservative Party, the 1,201 Party members responding to our latest survey are notably unmoved.

Amazingly so, in fact – the passage of a month has produced near-identical results. Today, 9.49 per cent of respondents support a second referendum; a month ago, 9.51 per cent did so. Today, 89.01 per cent oppose a re-run; a month ago, that figure stood at 89.41 per cent.

What does this tell us?

First, it would be wrong to pretend there is no support for such a ballot in the Conservative grassroots. There is some (hence this site has given a platform to it), but judging from our survey it forms a rump of fewer than one in ten. The Conservative Party is a broad church, and should continue to be so.
