A regional daily which found 80pc of its readers would vote to leave the European Union in a pre-referendum poll is re-running the survey to see if their minds have changed on the issue.
In March, a poll by the E&S showed four out of five readers intended to vote Leave but despite the result of its pre-vote poll, the E&S remained neutral on the issue throughout campaigning.
In the actual referendum, 62.6pc of people within the city of Wolverhampton voted in favour of Brexit.
Last week HTFP reported that a poll run by the Sunderland Echo had revealed 61pc of readers now favoured staying in the European Union – the same percentage of people in the city who had voted for Brexit in June.
A similar poll marking six months since the referendum has also been launched by the Leicester Mercury.
In an editorial announcing the second poll, the E&S wrote: “Nobody expected Brexit to happen overnight, and history will judge David Cameron’s resignation as an irresponsible, if not cowardly act. Theresa May has had to pick up the reins, and it has been no easy task.
“She has had to take on the embittered rump of the civil service, the highly politicised and pro-Europe BBC, as well as disingenuous rebels within her own party. But what about you? How would you vote if the likes of Nick Clegg and Tim Farron ever get their way and a second referendum is put before the electorate?
“It was always feared that if the country delivered the ‘wrong’ verdict, Brussels would attempt to do everything it could to reverse the decision. Since the referendum all manner of steam-rolling tactics and bluster have been used in a bid to get the masses to have second thoughts about Brexit.
“Back in June the people of the Black Country and Staffordshire voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU. But have you changed your mind in the ensuing six months?”
