Most Youthful Back EU But Unlikely To Vote - Poll

Apathy among youthful voters could deliver a boost to those campaigning to quit the European Union, a poll has indicated.

A survey has suggested fifty-three percent of eighteen to 34-year-olds wish to stay in the EU, in comparison to twenty-nine percent who wish to leave.

But the same poll, published in The Observer, found only around half (fifty-two%) of youthful Britons are certainly going to vote in June'south referendum on the UK'south membership of the European Union, a poll suggests.

Among Britons aged fifty-five and over, eighty-one percent are definitely going to vote on twenty-third June - and as fifty-four percent of this age grouping wish to leave the trading bloc, there are fears the final result may be skewed in their favour.

Government strategists are privately admitting that the prospect of low turnout among youthful adults is a "central problem" for the Stay campaign, the newspaper reported.

Overall, the Opinium poll suggested the Leave campaign currently has a four-point lead over those who wish to Remain.

Pollster Adam Drummond told The Observer: "This shows how necessary turnout levels are going to be, particularly given the disparity between how likely the youthful and the elderly are to vote.

"Youthful people are much more pro-EU but much less likely to bother voting, meaning that a key element of Remain'south coalition is looking flaky."

Meanwhile, the majority of UK-based aerospace, defence and security companies believe the UK should stay in the European Union, according to an industry body.

ADS Grouping has claimed seventy percent of its members think staying in the trading bloc would be better for their businesses - as it gives them access to free trade on the continent, as well as research and development funding which makes the UK more competitive on the world stage.

The industry body'south members collectively employ 310.000 people in Britain and generate £31bn in exports each year, and several firms declare an In vote gives the UK an skill to influence and shape EU regulations.

Airbus, one of the companies that ADS Grouping represents, said in Feb that its UK-based operations would be less competitive if the country opted to leave the EU in June's referendum.
