    No, I don't think that's true. Labour and Tories have a very split message about the EU. I suspect that is why Laura discarded them. I think the majority of Labour are pro remain. I cant quantify that at all, hence why I removed them.
    The electorate don't even know, hence why they scored so lowly.

I agree with BK Ray here.

Its too hard to side the Labour and Tory voters with one specific faction (Leave or Remain). Its far more complicated than that.

That said I do agree the Remainers interviewed pushed the "If you add up all the parties then the Brexit party lost" rhetoric right from the start.

At a hypothetical General Election (if held right now) we could see something like:

Conservative 160
Labour 160
Lib Dem 130
Brexit Party 130
SNP 40
Green Party 10
DUP 10

In which case only Labour + LibDems + SNP and/or Greens could form a minority government.

You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
