Most Remainers want MPs to vote in support for Boris Johnson's Brexit deal rather than vote against.

Opinium polling found that with the 'don't know' option removed 50% of those that voted Remain in the EU referendum support the prime minister's deal agreed with the European Union to avoid a no-deal Brexit situation.

By comparison just 19% want politicians to vote against the agreement.

The view is reflected by the wider population with 55% of the general public wanting MPs to support the agreement, 15% against, 9% agreeing with neither option and 20% not knowing.

Just 8% of Brexiteers who voted Leave in the referendum want MPs to vote against the deal, with 72% wanting politicians to support it.
