    I must have seen about 40 or 50 leave posters within 10 miles of my home, yet I've only ever seem 1 remain poster and that was only today.

    I have got one idea but I'm not too sure about it - I live in North Devon, where as much as I hate to admit it, there are more right wing individuals down here, even my girlfriends father to be honest.

    Leavers appear to be much more vocal, from what I've experienced.

    Where you live is be a big factor. I have received more remain leaflets than leave.

    In Oxfordshire I don't think I've seen any leave posters, quite a few remain one's though... but I don't exactly get out much.

    I just don't understand, I thought the current polls say it's about 50/50 as to whether people want to leave or remain yet no remainers actually do anything locally to help their campaign. (You may have guessed from this that I am in favour of remaining).

    Leavers are proud.

    Remainers are ashamed.

    Just as I thought, it seems it's due to the local area then I guess.

    Not exactly the correct thing to say. People who support either one are proud. The only ones who have to feel ashamed are the ones who bend the facts.

    You said it yourself, the polls are neck and neck. What other explanation would you give for so many Leave posters and so few Remain (it is similar in my area too).

    Because the leave ones are the edgy ones.

    The remain side is more calm and collected and it doesnt take much convincing to get intelligent people to vote remain.

    The leave side must do all they can to get the plebs to vote for them.

    I can't give another explanation, that's why I am asking - to see what other people think.

    That's interesting. From my experience the Leave voters are those who know much more about the EU, many of whom have been wanting to leave for years. I suppose the genius Sir James Dyson is a 'pleb' for backing Leave?

    Then you are wrong. You're more likely to vote remain if you have a degree for starters.

    Ahh yes the traitor who outsourced for cheaper labour. He's irrelevant.This is one globalist compared to the overwhelming number who say leave will damage the economy.
