Default Leavers are more tolerant of opposing views according to YouGov poll

Brexit: Remainers Ďmore botheredí by differing views in family, poll shows

More than a third of Remainers would be upset if a close relative married a strong Leave supporter and almost two thirds say that all or most of their friends share their stance on Brexit.

Leavers, however, are comparatively more likely to say that they have Remain-supporting friends and are also significantly less likely to be concerned at the prospect of welcoming an EU supporter into their family.

Polling by YouGov for The Times reveals how little the countryís two Brexit tribes interact. For example, only 8 per cent of people say that a majority of their work colleagues voted a different way,

When it comes to welcoming those with opposing Brexit stances into the family, it is Remainers who are markedly more resistant.

Surely a lot of that is down to beliefs about the actual implications, though.

For Leavers;

Option 1: "I get what I want"
Option 2: "Everything stays the same as now so whatever"


For remainers:

Option 1: "Everything stays the same as now"
Option 2: "Utter ****ing chaos"

I don't really believe it tbh. Considering that the main narrative since the referendum has been 'EVIL REMAINERS LOOKING TO UNDO BREXIT!!!!!' Not saying that the remain side is innocent but there does seem to be a lot more noticeable hate from the Brexit side of things.

I donít see anyone who has a different opinion to me as evil, or wrong.
But I do object to MPs who put their personal outlook on Brexit before their constituents.

Ehh, I wouldn't set too much store by this poll, I don't think leavers are inherently more open to opposite views, it's probably as reliable as those that say all leavers are swivel eyed racists.

I like that.

What we should be having a referendum on his how our political parties are run..

WE should have the final say in a whole heap of decisions..each party should put an idea forward along with a cross party idea then we the public should be online voting which one to go with..not just brexit, but nhs plans, environment plans etc etc.

This for me.

My best mate and family are all remainers wheras i voted leave.
We donít even talk about Brexit,Just doesnít come up.

I donít see all this apparent division thereís supposed to be around the country.

Quite a few of my family and in-laws voted remain.I think weíve talked about it once and then just not really mentioned it again.

I donít see people falling out over it.I think people in general are bored of the whole thing.

aren't leavers the ones who explain "BREXIT MEANS BREXIT" on every televised forum weather than actually discussing the logistics of it all.

I hope so, it would be scary and an act of submission if they did nothing.

do you have a link for that, my understanding is that the government have suggested that might happen and have put the army on standby....not seen any leaver group threatening to riot, and I am a remainer btw

Just wondering how tolerance in this case is measured objectively, it seems more like a "feeling"
