Some 55 percent of Britons believe exiting the European Union will cut the refugee influx into the country, while one in four UK citizens thinks leaving the European Union will decrease the terrorism threat for the United Kingdom, according to the survey.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The majority of UK nationals is responding better to the idea of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, as it would reduce immigration and improve the national healthcare system, according to a YouGov poll published Friday ahead of the official start of "Leave" and "Remain" campaigns.
Some 55 percent of the surveyed believe exiting the bloc will cut the refugee influx into the country, while one in four UK citizens thinks leaving the European Union will decrease the terrorism threat for the United Kingdom, according to the survey.
Over 30 percent of Britons find that terminating the UK membership will improve the National Health Service, compared to just 14 percent of those who do not back this notion, the poll results revealed.
However, the "Remain" campaign wins over the voters regarding economic issues, with 36 percent of UK nationals thinking Brexit will increase the cost of living in the United Kingdom, as well as negatively affect the domestic employment rate.
UK citizens are set to vote on June 23 in a referendum on the country's EU membership, after Prime Minister David Cameron and the leaders of the 27 European Union member states reached a deal in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc.
