Brexit: Majority 'favours leaving the European Union', poll shows
A majority of the UK public now favours leaving the European Union, according to a poll.
Research by ORB for The Independent found 52% wanted to see so-called "Brexit", compared to 48% who backed staying in.
It is the first time the survey has recorded a majority for quitting.
In June, July and September, 55% supported remaining inside the union, while last month the margin narrowed slightly to 53%-47%.
ORB questioned 2,000 people last Wednesday and Thursday.
