I know basic maths, something you obviously don't, or perhaps you just don't understand the meaning of the word majority. If 17,000,000 vote leave, then the majority figure is 8,500,001.
See I even take time to try and educate and explain.
As for reading minds, no. No, I just watch the news reports and polls.
Try it sometime, you may learn something.
Only 6% according to Lord Ashcroft poll said they voted no said their main reason was that “when it comes to trade and the economy, the UK would benefit more from being outside the EU than from being part of it.”
the referendum was essentially won on the issue of opposition to immigration. It’s noted that areas with the biggest change in the number of foreign-born residents in the preceding 15 years were some of the ones with the highest Leave votes.
Just yesterday a sky news poll had 52% saying controlling immigration is more important than access to the single market.
