(ANSA) - ROME, DECEMBER 26 - A year after the United Kingdom left the European Union, more than 6 out of 10 British voters believe that Brexit has gone badly or worse than they expected. This is what emerges from a survey published by the Observer.


    The Opinium poll - revealed a week after the resignations of Johnson's Brexit minister, DavidFrost - also indicates that 42% of those who voted in 2016 for Leave today have a negative view of how Brexit has fared so far. Among Remain voters, who instead wanted to stay in the EU, 86% said things went badly or worse than expected. Only 14% of the entire electorate believe Brexit has gone better than expected.


    The most surprising finding, Adam Drummond of Opinion explained, is that Leavers are now more hesitant about the benefits of Brexit than they previously thought.

"During the Brexit process, whenever the question 'is Brexit good or bad?' Was asked, all Remainers answered 'bad' and all Leavers answered 'good', effectively canceling each other out."

Now, however, the percentage of those who voted to leave the EU who believe that it went badly or at least worse than expected has increased.

Only 17% of the Beavers respond: "I expected it to be okay and it did."
