Pre-Meaningful Vote Brexit Survey Results

Prior to the Meaningful Vote, Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, asked constituents to complete a survey about their views on Brexit. For those who wished to discuss their view face to face or share their hopes and concerns in their own words, Darren also held six Brexit Briefings, including one online, and received thousands of emails, campaign postcards and letters. The consensus from the emails and letters received was in tandem with the results below.

Several constituents have asked what the survey results showed. Darren has therefore put together the below briefing which sets out the headline results. The survey was completed by over 1,100 constituents.

  • Over, 44% of respondents were 55 or older. 38% were aged between 35 and 54. 15% were aged 18 to 34.
  • 77% of respondents wanted to remain in the EU, 10% wanted to leave with a ‘hard Brexit’ (no deal) and 12% wanted to leave with a soft-Brexit (a deal).
  • 77% of respondents wanted a so-called People’s Vote on the final deal, 18% did not and the rest were unsure.
  • 70% of respondents wanted Darren to vote against a deal that was not good enough, so we could pause Brexit or hold a People’s Vote. 16% wanted Darren to vote against as ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’. 9% wanted Darren to back a deal as they felt ‘any deal was better than no deal’. The rest were unsure.
