Farmers want to remain

It is a deeply embedded myth that farmers voted in favour of Brexit. In fact there is no evidence base in favour of that view other than a Farmers Weekly poll in which respondents were self-selected rather than based on a sample.

However, for what it is worth, Farmers Weekly has done a new poll on how farmers would vote in a three way referendum. 64 per cent selected remain, 28 per cent backed the Chequers deal and just six per cent wanted to leave without a trade deal.
