first_imgOur readers are split almost equally over whether Jeremy Corbyn should back another EU referendum, the latest LabourList survey has found.The Labour leader has come under significant pressure to support a fresh public vote over the last few months, with polls by YouGov in September and by an academic study earlier this month showing that party members overwhelmingly favour the idea.But the latest weekly survey, which attracted 7,224 responses over three days, found that a slim majority of 50.2% believed Corbyn should not support another vote, while 49.8% believed he should.The survey also found that a majority of LabourList readers (55.6%) considered ‘no Brexit’ to be “the best outcome”, preferring it to Corbyn’s plan for a Brexit deal.Almost 40% chose Corbyn’s alternative Brexit, while only 5.3% supported ‘no deal’, 5% EEA membership/the Norway (plus) model and 1.3% – just 91 readers – May’s plan.The vast majority of LabourList readers (72.9%) also said they believed that Theresa May would be willing to take the UK out of the EU without having secured a deal – despite Corbyn’s description of no deal preparations as “Project Fear”.According to the survey, the most popular shadow cabinet member is Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer, with Corbyn allies John McDonnell and Emily Thornberry winning second and third place respectively.1.
