YouGov poll for The Times on Remain / Leave EU

The Times is backing the Remain campaign. On the front page of today’s edition the leading article bore the headline, ‘Final polls leave Britain’s future on a knife edge’. It reports the results of a poll the paper commissioned from YouGov, and includes this:

The survey suggests that most men will vote to Leave, with a majority of women opting to Remain.

This is predictable, in part due to what is known about the gendered nature of risk aversion – though many would say ‘Remain’ is a riskier option, in the longer term, than ‘Leave’ – but will sufficient women have voted today to push the ‘Remain’ campaign to victory? We’ll soon know. In recent weeks I’ve found MRAs mostly in the ‘Leave’ camp, by a large majority.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Voted Leave because I want to see equality law scaled back to the US level.

  • “will sufficient women have voted today to push the ‘Remain’ campaign to victory?”

    There are more female voters than male, so whoever they support is more likely to win as a result.

    • I understand the proportion of women who vote is generally less than the proportion of men who vote, this must have an impact.

  • This may be a harbinger for a Trump victory. Men are turning out in sufficient numbers to overcome the female majority. Just maybe the beast has been awakened.
