There’s been a huge swing in Brexit sentiment over the past few months, a referendum tracker has revealed.
The number of people who think we were wrong for voting for Brexit has jumped significantly while the number of people thinking the opposite has plummeted.
Just 42 per cent now think we were right to leave the European Union, with 47 per cent saying we were wrong.
That marks a 5 point split – the biggest gulf there has ever been.

In a live interview on LBC radio earlier this week Prime Minister Theresa May refused three times to say if she would vote for a Brexit if there was another EU Referendum.
The Prime Minister was originally a supporter of the Remain Campaign, but kept her cards close her chest during the referendum campaign.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he would vote to remain in the EU in the event of another referendum, criticising the government for its “shocking” lack of progress in the Brexit talks.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
