AJ Twitter poll: 79 per cent back Remain in the EU referendum

The majority of the profession will be voting for the UK to stay in the European Union tomorrow (23 June), according to an online survey by the AJ  

A huge 79 per cent of respondents to the quick-fire Twitter poll said they would be backing the Remain campaign when they cast their vote in the EU referendum. Just 13 per cent said they wanted the country to leave the EU.

The latest results mirror the findings of an in-depth survey of more than 570 AJ readers into their attitudes on Brexit earlier in the year (see AJ 25.04.16).    

That research revealed that 78 per cent were against leaving the EU, a figure that varied only slightly across age groups and between men and women.

Taking into account a small number of undecided participants, only 14 per cent of those surveyed said they were in favour of EU withdrawal.

Yesterday both Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and SimpsonHaugh and Partners came out in favour of the UK remaining in the European Union.   

Richard Rogers’ practice posted a statement on the company’s website saying a vote to leave would ‘represent a catastrophic error of judgement in its impact on our economy, not least within the construction sector’.
