ChangeUK's anti-Brexit message has not reached many people
A YouGov poll has found that more of the public see Labour as anti-Brexit than the Change UK party.
Change UK is a new group formed mainly of members of parliament who left the Labour Party because they felt it was not doing enough to stop Brexit.
Despite being anti-Brexit being the party’s main issue, just 38% of the public polled said the party was anti-Brexit while 42% said Labour was anti-Brexit.
About the same proportion of the public, 13%, said each party was pro-Brexit.
The Scottish National Party is seen as the most anti-Brexit party, followed by the Liberal Democrats and then the Greens.
The poll also revealed that, of those likely to vote for Labour in the European elections: 45% believe the party is anti-Brexit, 27% think it is neither and 14% said it was pro-Brexit.
Liberal Democrat and Change UK voters are far more likely to believe the party they’re voting for is anti-Brexit.
