Chart of the Day: the people and the elite disagree on Europe
The populace and 'opinion-formers' do not agree on the UK's future in Europe.
Britain's ‘elite’ – business leaders, politicians, academics and journalists – do not agree with their less influential countrymen over the UK's future in Europe.
People in this group of 'opinion formers' are less keen to hold a referendum on Britain’s place in Europe, and more enthusiastic about staying in the European Union, according to a YouGov poll.
YouGov conducted two surveys on behalf of Chatham House. The first was of a representative sample of 2,079 adults. This fieldwork was undertaken between 13 and 15 June 2012. The survey was carried out online and the figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18 and over).
The second survey was of 735 ‘opinion-formers’ from YouGovStone’s panel of influential adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 14 and 21 June 2012. The survey was carried out online.
