Between April and May 2019, 18 workshops were carried out by ComRes to understand the post-Brexit priorities of low-income voters as the UK looks to leave the European Union.
They have published a report in July 2019 (pdf), analysing the findings.
The workshops finds:
- A deep-seated anger with the political establishment for years of perceived economic marginalisation, resulting in poverty and a lack of opportunities for people to thrive in their local area
- Voters have lost faith and confidence in politicians at both local and central government levels
- Low-income voters see it as the responsibility of government to implement changes and invest in their local economy.
- Brexit makes participants feel insecure, uncertain and ignored.
