2 Brexit Polls Give Edge To 'remain' Camp

A pair of polls released late Wednesday showed the "remain" camp with a modest edge over "leave" on the eve of the U.K. referendum on whether to exit the European Union. A ComRes telephone poll conducted for the Daily Mail newspaper and ITV news showed "remain" had extended its lead, with 48% of respondents favoring a stay vote versus 42% for "leave" and 11% undecided. That compares with a 46%-45% edge for remain in the previous ComRes poll released a week ago. A separate YouGov poll released Wednesday showed voters preferring remain by a 51% to 49% margin. Earlier Wednesday, an Opinium survey showed respondents narrowly favored "leave" by 45% to 44%.
