It is hard to exaggerate the importance of public opinion when it came to Brexit. The decision to leave the EU was itself, of course, the result of a public vote. And as the subsequent Brexit process rolled on, both sides anxiously examined every survey for evidence of what the public now thought. Some people continud to believe that a significant shift in public opinion might allow the decision made in June 2016 to be reconsidered.

In this report, a team of experts on public opinion considered not only what happened in the referendum itself, but also what had taken place in terms of public attitudes subsequently.
