Mr Soros was appearing on a panel at the annual council meeting of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR). On the topic of Britain’s EU referendum, he claimed that the British public were “shocked” that voters chose ‘Brexit’ and stated those who voted to leave had “genuine buyer’s remorse”. He contended that many voters who opted for ‘Brexit’ did so as a protest vote, with the “conviction that Leave would not succeed”.
Poll results suggest the claim that Leave voters have “buyer’s remorse”, which has been echoed across the international media on scant evidence, is false. In fact, so far surveys have reliably shown the opposite; More Remain voters are pleased with the result to leave the EU than ‘Brexit’ voters are unhappy.
A poll for ComRes found that, of Remain voters, four per cent are happy with the referendum’s outcome while 88 per cent are unhappy. Of Leave voters, 92 per cent are happy that ‘Brexit’ won while only one per cent are unhappy.
