Northern Ireland Border Poll 2016

Ipsos MORI carried out a survey for BBC Northern Ireland’s The View programme on public attitudes towards a border poll and how the public might vote i.e. whether they would vote for Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom or for Northern Ireland to be joined with the Republic of Ireland outside of the United Kingdom.. Also the survey investigated if Brexit would influence how the general public might vote in such a border poll. There was also a question on whether a future referendum in Scotland which resulted in Scotland voting to leave the United Kingdom would influence how the general public in Northern Ireland would vote in a border poll regarding Northern Ireland.

Technical note 1,013 adults representative of the Northern Ireland population aged 16 and over were asked a series of 4 questions between 16 August and 2nd September 2016. All interviewing was conducted on a face to face basis via Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI). Data are weighted to match the profile of the population. Those aged 18 and over were extrapolated resulting in a sample size of 979.
