Abstract

The post-2015 British Election Study ran from May to September last year surveying a random sample of the British public regarding their vote choice in May 2015. It also asked broader questions including attitudes towards the EU and whether respondents would vote Leave or Remain in a future referendum. Demographic data, including ethnicity and religious affiliation and attendance, were also gathered in the study. Here Siobhan McAndrew analyses this data, finding a notable difference in voting between Anglicans and members of other faith groups, as well as how an English identity (or its manifestation as distinct from Britishness) has a strong association with referendum voting intentions.
