TWO-thirds of over-50s will vote for Brexit in this week’s referendum – with 77 per cent believing it could spell the end of the EU altogether.

A new survey has revealed 66 per cent of those aged 50 and older will vote to leave the European Union in Thursday’s referendum.

And 77 per cent believe if the country leaves the European Union other countries will follow, suggesting a possible end to the EU.

Many believe the politicians backing the Remain campaign lack influence compared to those supporting Brexit.

Only 9 per cent think the Prime Minister David Cameron, who has been heading the Remain campaign, has been influential and 4 per cent say the same for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

owever politicians backing the Brexit campaign seem to be more appealing to older votes.

A third (31 per cent) say Nigel Farage, UKIP leader and Leave campaigner, is the most influential politician in the debate followed by Brexit leader Michael Gove (28 per cent).

The poll by lifestyle website Silversurfers.com found 89 per cent of over 50s think politicians are more interested in their careers than the actual outcome. Distrust in both campaigns seems to be a common theme.
