Poll finds Brexit-backing Wales would vote to rejoin EU
- Credit: PA
Almost half of Welsh voters would rejoin the EU, a new poll has found.
Despite a Brexit deal being reached at the eleventh hour, 44% of Welsh voters told ITV News they would vote yes if EU membership was put to another referendum.
By comparison, 38% would reject rejoining and almost a fifth - 19% - said they don't know which way they'd go.
Back in 2016, the country's vote was split 52.5% Leave - with 47.5% backing Remain.
Fast forward four-and-a-half years and some voters have changed their tune, with 12% of Leave voters polled now saying they would rejoin.

Conversely, 9% of Remain voters would now go in the opposite direction.
Whatever a person's tendency, the poll reveals it to be closely tethered to party loyalty.

Of the Conservative voters at the general election in 2019, four-fifths (80%) said they would vote against.
The pro-rejoining stance is popular amongst Labour and Plaid Cymru supporters, of whom 69 and 74% respectively would vote in favour.
