MOSCOW (Sputnik) – More than 50 percent of the people in the United Kingdom believe that their government is handling the Brexit negotiations badly, while just 18 percent think that the government is doing well, a poll by YouGov revealed on Thursday.

"Our latest update on what the public think about Brexit shows that a majority think the government are doing badly at negotiating British exit from the European Union. More than half (52%) think the government are doing badly, just 18% think they are doing well. Both Leave and Remain voters give the thumbs down," the poll's results showed.

Despite this outcome, 68 percent of the people think that Brexit must take place, while people who voted in favor of remaining part of the European Union are evenly divided between those who were against Brexit but think that it is the government's duty to leave the union following the referendum, and those who would like the government to simply ignore the results of the referendum and stay part of the European bloc.

With respect to what kind of Brexit would the people like, 31 percent preferred to remain in the European Union, while 26 percent said that they support a "hard Brexit" which would mean leaving the EU Single Market completely, another 26 percent said that they would like to have a Canada style deal, known as the Comprehensive Economic And Trade Agreement (CETA), which aims to establish a free trade zone between Canada and the European Union.

The remaining 17 percent of the people preferred to go with an European Free Trade Association (EFTA) membership, which also was the second best option for people who voted to remain in the European bloc.

On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
