EU Referendum Poll of Polls

The What UK Thinks: EU Poll of Polls is based on the average share of the vote for ‘Leave’ and ‘Remain’ in the six most recent polls of voting intentions in the EU Referendum.

The bar chart to the right shows the average of the six most recent polls, the fieldwork for which was conducted between 16 and 22 June 2016. It is based on one (online) poll by TNS, one (phone) poll by ComRes, one (online) poll by Opinium, one (online) poll by YouGov, one (phone) poll by Ipsos MORI and one (online) poll by Populus.  The most recent additions are a poll by Ipsos MORI conducted between 21 and 22 June and one by Populus undertaken between those same dates.

The line graph below shows how the Poll of Polls has changed since polling based on the question that will appear on the ballot paper began in September 2015. The date at the bottom of the graph represents the date on which interviewing for the most recent poll in that set of six was concluded. Details of which companies’ polls are included in each estimate can be seen as you drag your cursor along the line graph.

Note the series includes both polls that were only conducted in Great Britain and those that were conducted across the United Kingdom as a whole.
