The results show 46% of the country supported the option to Remain while 27% each opted for Theresa May’s deal and no deal Brexit.

Commenting on the finding YouGov wrote: “As she prepares for next Tuesday’s vote it seems that Theresa May’s deal faces the same problems amongst the public as she does among MPs. Whilst it may be more successful in head to head battles, against both No Deal or Remain, it is struggling to fight on both flanks at the same time.”
