YouGov re-contact poll puts 'Remain' at 52.0%, report says
The result of YouGov's re-contact poll puts 'Remain' at 52.0% versus 'Leave' at 48.0%, Sky reports.
As of 22:10 BST cable is higher by 0.73% to 1.4986.
To take note of, in a research note sent to clients early on Thursday evening Samuel Tombs, chief UK economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, cautioned that while YouGov's re-contact poll showed a high degree of accuracy in Scotland's referendum, "YouGov’s poll will be only as accurate as the sample of voters it originally obtained for its polls".
Hence, he said: "we will have to wait for a decent percentage of the 382 counting areas across Britain to declare results, before safely concluding that the threat of Brexit has been overcome. As we set out in our June 21 Monitor, the Electoral Commission expects around 20% of counting areas to have declared results by 3am, rising to 55% by 4am and 90% by 5am."
His forecast was for cable to 'top-out' at about 1.50.
