When asked about the impact on the UK economy, around half of Scots (52%) think it will be negative compared to one in five (21%) who think it will have a positive effect. Similarly, 43% think that Brexit will have a negative impact on the UK’s influence on the world stage, compared to 24% who think the opposite.
Scots are also generally also negative about the prospects for Europe following Brexit; 48% think it will be negative for the EU economy compared to 15% who think it will be positive, and 37% think it will be negative for the EU’s standing in the world compared to 16% who think it will be positive. However, our views on the impact of Brexit on Europe are less negative than the views of people in most countries across Europe where negativity is far greater.
Mark Diffley, Ipsos, Scotland said:
Given that nearly two-thirds of Scots voted to remain in the EU, it is perhaps unsurprising that most think Brexit will have a negative impact in terms of economy and international standing and influence. What is interesting though is that we see Brexit as less negative for the European economy and influence than people in other European countries, including across Britain as a whole.
These results and more new polling on Brexit and attitudes to immigration and the refugee crisis will be discussed at Ipsos in Scotland’s event in Edinburgh this evening. For more details contact Mark Diffley.
Results are based on a survey of 1,000 respondents. Fieldwork dates: 5th September to 11th September 2016.
