Harpenden for Europe and sister groups engaged more than 950 people in six surveys around St Albans, Harpenden, Southdown, Redbourn, Wheathampstead and Hitchin on September 29 as part of the People’s Vote National Day of Action.
The Brexitometer survey boards in each location asked residents their thoughts about contentious topics such as ongoing negotiations, job security, the NHS, and a People’s Vote on the final deal.
Results showed more than 93 per cent of respondents believe Brexit is going badly, more than 85 per cent think it will be bad for jobs and the NHS, and nearly 80 per cent would welcome a People’s Vote.
Chair of HfE, Richard Scott, said: “These polls show once again that a huge majority of local residents want a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal.
“We’re talking to people from every walk of life and political persuasion, and the truth is people are worried. They increasingly fear Brexit’s impact on jobs and public services.
“They’re upset by the poor progress made by the Government in negotiations and the growing risk of no deal, which the Government has itself admitted will impact food and medical supplies, flights and other vital services.
“Such an outcome was never on the table in 2016, so it’s unsurprising that people all around the country want a final say.”
