Most Britons think Brexit is not worth it if it means a lower rate of economic growth, a new poll has revealed.
The Sky Data polling comes after figures released by the Treasury suggest the economy could be 3.9% worse off after 15 years as a result of the government's proposed Brexit deal.
Just over half of Britons (51%) said that staying in the EU would be best for the economy. Just 24% think a no-deal Brexit with only 17% supporting the government's position.
Asked if Brexit under the government's deal would be worth it if it led to lower economic growth, 63% say it would not, with just 19% agreeing.
The polling appears to be at odds with some Brexiteers who claim that the Brexit vote was not about the economy.
