There's an interesting aspect to the BBC Wales poll on Welsh attitudes to membership of the European Union
The poll asked
"The prime minister has said he wants to renegotiate the UK's relationship with the EU and hold a referendum if he wins the next general election".
Poll: Question on EU membership
SOURCE: ICM PHONE POLL OF 1,000 ADULTS IN WALES, 20-25 FEBRUARY, FOR BBC CYMRU WALES. THE MARGIN OF ERROR IS +/-3.2%
UK better off outside EU
UK benefits from EU membership
Note, that the question was about the UK and not Wales being better off outside the EU.
Why didn;t the BBC include whether people thought Wales would be better off in or out ?
Perhaps we should also look at the ITV Cymru Wales/YouGov Opinion Poll for the Sharp End suggests that Wales would vote for Britain to stay in the European Union if a referendum was now
- Remain in the EU 42%
- Leave the EU 35%
- Don't Know/Won't Vote 22
- Does this ambiguity suggest that Welsh voters may have a different opinion on the EU when looking at it from a Welsh rather than a UK perspective?
- To be honest I don't know, but I find it incredible that BBC Wales didn't seek to find out.
