Pollwatch: Sunday Times/Behaviour and Attitudes April 22nd

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - MAY 05:  A polling st...

Yet another poll! Thats the way I’m feeling at this point anyway, but back to this poll which does have some interesting details on the Referendum. The poll by Behaviour and Attitudes survey of 946 over seven days ending on Tuesday.

The topline figures on the Treaty Referendum are as follows:

  • Yes: 42%
  • No: 27%
  • Undecided: 31%

When undecideds are excluded the the figures look more familiar:

  • Yes: 61%
  • No: 39%

So no major news there. The interest is when people were asked to they understand the treaty, the responses were as follows:

  • Understood Very Well: 6%
  • Understand Quite Well: 12%
  • Understand to some extent: 27%
  • Do not understand it particularly well: 23%
  • Do not understand it all: 32%

The big task on the Yes sides now will be to get the 55% of people who don’t understand to understand! If the Yes manages that will win the referendum on May 31st!
