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.
