    The number of Brexit supporters among the UK citizens increased by 4 percent amid immigration concerns, a poll revealed Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the ORB pollster's survey carried out for the The Daily Telegraph, 46 percent of those interviewed said they would vote to leave the European Union, while 51 percent supported the Remain campaign. The previous poll results showed 55 percent said they would vote in favor of remaining and 42 percent said they would vote to leave the bloc.

    The pollster interviewed 800 voters last week.

    UK nationals 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 EU member states agreed in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc. The rival campaigns officially started in early April.
