HALF of people in Andover think the country would be better off economically in Europe - and a majority want to stick with the Single Market.

A new Brexit survey shows 49 per cent of Andover Advertiser readers believe Britain will be better off economically inside Europe.

As well as this 55 per cent said Britain should continue to be part of the single European market.

The figures show a split between those who voted Leave and those who voted Remain in the referendum.

Among Leave voters, eight per cent think Britain is better off economically in Europe, while nearly a quarter of these voters (23 per cent) think we should continue to be part of the Single Market.

Remain voters are, unsurprisingly, much more likely to think continuing close ties with Europe is a good idea, with 83 per cent saying Britain is better off economically inside Europe and 81 per cent saying we should continue to be part of the Single Market.

More than half of those surveyed (53 per cent) said they were not happy with the status of Brexit negotiations at the moment, with just a fifth (20 per cent) saying they were happy (the rest were not sure).

Regardless of how those surveyed voted in the referendum, they were more likely to be unhappy than happy with the way negotiations are going.

Among those who said they voted Leave, 36 per cent are unhappy with the status of negotiations compared to 31 per cent who were happy. More than two-thirds of those who voted Remain (67 per cent) said they were unhappy, compared to 10 per cent who said they were happy.

However, most of those surveyed said they would still stick with how they voted - 86 per cent of Leave voters and 93 per cent of Remain voters. Leave voters were more likely to say they would not vote in the same way now, with one in 14 Leave voters saying they'd act differently (seven per cent) compared to one in 36 Remain voters (three per cent).

The study, run in partnership with Google Surveys, was completed online by 600 people who visited the Andover Advertiser website.
