Why is there so much support for Remain in EU now compared to a year ago?

I recently did a poll and expected overwhelmingly pro Leave result at least 70% Leave but it’s the opppsite.
Ive looked at TSR polls on Leave / Remain from 12 months ago and they were heavily infavor of Leave.

What has changed?

I thought even more people would want Leave. A year ago I was fairly undecided and I couldn’t vote in the referendum. Now I’m supporting Brexit, because it will be good for Britain and get people spending their money in Britain again instead of abroad.

Now with progress in sight, trade deals, a new passport and a feeling of pride and freedom I thought even more people would support Brexit now.

Because the naive Brexit voters have started to realise how stupid they were and that all the "scaremongering" wasn't actually scaremongering.

It is not though. TSR is not representative of the UK. This was similar to the idea that the country was overwhelmingly behind remaining.

I thought that TSR was generally pro- Brexit more so than the UK as a whole.

Nah, I don't think so. I think there were more Remainers.

Progress, that's a bit of reach tbh . Barely anything has been done , there are no solid deals yet. Brexit is not even worth it - pound has declined, prices are going to rise but who cares about that when we can have a blue passport.

whether we leave or not, one thing is clear - the European ComMission/Council/Parliament can no longer ignore or dismiss the rise of the far-right within the continent.

People place too much reliance’s on the news and other sources, rather than actually doing research theirselves.

What is a newspaper More likely to sell?
“Alright fellas, it’s going absolutely fine really”
Or “holy **** we are all going to die the whole world is coming to an end”

I honestly believe that once we have left the EU, financial stability and confidence in our economy will Be restored and everything will level out again.

There have been positives as well from leaving, such as exports businesses booming and just the fact that our economy has survived so much better than predicted during a time of uncertainty is a huge plus.

Just don’t believe everything you read and research to make your own decisions, instead of heavily relying on biased media which has the intention of creating a sellable story.

I don't get how our economy surviving and being relatively stable is a plus for brexit, it would have been the same (or better) if we didn't leave and the pound would still be higher.

It is a plus because it is uncertainty within an economy which puts strain on it and with uncertainty, it’s inevitable that the pound drops. As it has and will rise as certainty is returned to our market. It shows that even with this uncertainty, we have managed very well and it is a good indicator that as trade talks move forward, we will continue to regain our strength.

So far, we haven’t even left the EU. So you can’t blame any of the stuff that has happened on leaving the EU. It is stuff that has been caused by the uncertainty surrounded by the decision to leave the EU. (With the acception maybe of rehousing UK based EU organisations, which it was agreed we wouldn’t pay for)

And yes the pound would not have dropped, but then we would have also still been tied to a controlling organisation and accumulated further debts and let their hooks get deeper within us year by year. The pound will rise again, and we will continue as we have done.

Also, need to quote me if you want me to see what you’ve replied.

The actual polls show nothing has changed and that makes this thread pointless

Do you think 12 months Plus of every elite in the country from the Media, news organisations politics celebrities , academia etc screaming that the vote shouldn't count it was the wrong decision we're on the Titanic heading for the mother of all icebergs............. take a breath....Noooooooooooo,. might have something to do with it?

And for most people on here being pro-brexit you will only have to see the way the comments are going to know that is not true.

Because of the bias everywhere, especially on mainstream news channels. Free speech and free choice has been replaced by media-upheld conformity. Check where the polls are sourced too. Whatever side you were on, the vote and the people who voted must be respected. That is the basic principle of democracy.
