Majority of ActSmart subscribers to 'vote leave'

ActSmart's poll of independent leisure retailers suggests the majority will be voting for Britain to leave the EU.

Some 61.54% of respondents to our online poll said the UK should leave the European Union, with 34.62% voting to remain and just 3.85% still undecided.

This is in contrast to most national polls, which have suggested most will vote remain in the referendum (a ComRes poll on May 19 found 52% in favour of remain, 41% for Leave and 7% undecided).

It seems that the size of a business has a lot to do with their views on the upcoming referendum. The centre for retail research suggests that 96% of larger businesses (including retailers) want to stay in the EU, whereas less than half of SMEs shared the same view (47%).
