A Brexit And The Collapse Of The EU Is All But Certain Now

It wasn’t that long ago that the possibility of Britain leaving the EU, was considered far fetched. While a significant segment of the population was eager to be rid of the economic union, they were still in the minority. In fact, euroscepticism hasn’t been a mainstream idea in Britain until recently. Now for the first time since Britain joined the European Economic Community (the precursor to the EU), it looks they’re probably going to leave.

When it was first announced earlier this year that British citizens would have the opportunity to vote to leave the EU on June 26th, it seemed like a long shot. But with increasing concerns over unfettered immigration from Muslim countries, a situation that has been enabled by the EU, polls are leaning more towards a Brexit than they ever have before. In fact, for the very first time, pretty much every poll shows that more people want to leave the EU than stay.

According to the YouGov poll for The Times, “Leave” held 46 percent support compared with 39 percent support for “Remain.” Undecided voters were 11 percent, while 4 percent won’t vote.

Last Monday The Times/YouGov had reported a 1 percent lead for the “Remain” campaign…

Other polls published on Monday also put “Leave” ahead, while betting odds on Brexit narrowed.

An ORB poll for The Daily Telegraph put support for “Leave” at 49 percent, compared with Remain’s 48 percent, while two ICM polls, one online and one conducted by telephone, found “Out” held 53 percent support compared with 47 percent support for “In,” the Guardian newspaper, which sponsored the telephone poll said.

That compared with a 52-48 percent split in favor of “Out” in ICM polls two weeks ago, the Guardian said. Those polls excluded respondents who answered “don’t know.”

Unless something drastic reverses this trend, Britain will be on its way out of the EU, and they’ll be the first country to do so. And that could have some pretty serious consequences for the global economy.
