LGBT voters could decide the outcome of a second Brexit referendum, a YouGov poll found. A January 2019 survey showed that, if there is a new public vote on whether the UK should remain in the European Union, gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans voters could make a difference. Polling experts at YouGov conducted the largest survey on Brexit since the 2016 referendum, questioning more than 25,000 electors. They also included 1,559 LGBT voters. When asked ‘If there were a referendum today on whether or not the UK should remain a member of the European Union, how would you vote?’ 71% of LGBT voters said they would vote to remain a member of the EU. LGBT voters support Remain by 71% to 29%. Despite LGBT voters comprising only 6% to 7% percent of all voters, their 42-point Remain lead has a pronounced effect on the overall figures. This would double Remain’s lead from 4% to 8%.
