Brexit latest: Brexiteers more determined for no deal Brexit than Remainers back Corbyn | Politics | News

Jeremy Corbyn’s plans to oust Boris Johnson’s government have been crushed after a poll revealed almost half of voters (48 percent) would prefer the country to break away from the EU without a deal and the Labour leader not become Prime Minister. The YouGov poll found that only a third (35 percent) would rather Mr Corbyn move in to Downing Street and hold a second Brexit vote.

The remaining 17 percent were unsure.

Meanwhile, an overwhelming 80 percent of Leave voters said they were behind a no deal Brexit and Mr Corbyn not becoming Prime Minister.

This is compared to just 64 percent of Remainers who were behind Mr Corbyn becoming Prime Minister and holding a second referendum.

The poll comes after Mr Corbyn called for a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Mr Johnson to lead a “strictly time-limited temporary government” that would block Brexit in a bid to call a General Election.

The poll quizzed 1,968 people between Thursday, August 15 and Friday, August 16.
