Wales would vote to remain in the EU if the poll was re-run, according to the projections of two new polls published today.

A Survation poll projected that only Pembrokeshire, Torfaen, Flintshire and Wrexham would vote to Leave the EU today, and by small margins of 50.29%, 51.3%, 50.53% and 51.53%.

A YouGov poll for ITV and Cardiff University also projected that 51% would now vote to Remain in Wales, with 20% voting to leave with a deal and 30% with no deal if voters in Wales were offered those three options in a hypothetical referendum.

However, only 41% supported a second referendum in the YouGov poll, with 49% in opposition.

In July 2016, 854,572 (52.5%) voters in Wales chose to leave the EU, compared with 772,347 (47.5%) supporting Remain.

Only five areas – Gwynedd, Cardiff, Ceredigion, the Vale of Glamorgan and Monmouthshire – voted for Remain.

Survation’s survey of 20,090 people living in the UK, across every parliamentary constituency, was featured as part of a live discussion programme on Channel 4, “Brexit: What The Nation Really Thinks”.

According to the survey, the average Leave vote across Wales would be 46%. Here is the full breakdown of figures for Wales from the Survation poll:
