Barack Obama urging Britons to stay in EU did not work, poll suggests
Barack Obama’s dramatic intervention into the EU debate did not have the intended effect, a new poll has suggested.
The US president said Britain would be at "the back of the queue" for trade deals with his nation if it broke ties with Brussels on 23 June - a comment seen as a major coup for the Remain camp.
But a YouGov poll for the Times has put Leave at 42%, up three points from two weeks ago, with those backing Remain at 41%, up one point.
The percentage of those saying they don’t know was three points down at 13%, while 4% said they would not be voting.
If the ‘do-not knows’ are excluded from the poll, the Out campaign is ahead at 51%, with In is at 49% - a reverse of two weeks ago.
Other measures to try and boost the Remain campaign have included the Chancellor producing Treasury analysis warning against Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn making a pro-EU speech.
