Brexit: 72% of Northern Ireland's 16-year-olds would vote 'remain', survey reveals

Brexit: 72% of Northern Ireland's 16-year-olds would vote 'remain', survey reveals
- The survey found that if Northern Ireland’s 16-year-olds had the opportunity to vote, most would be in favour of the UK remaining part of the EU, with almost three quarters assuming that the UK’s decision to leave the EU would be personally damaging to them.
The research, commissioned by the British Council and carried out by ARK through their annual Young Life and Times (YLT) survey, involved 1,009 young people from across Northern Ireland.
Overall, 72% respondents said they would vote for the UK to remain within the EU, 13% said they would vote for the UK to leave,  and 11% said they did not know how they would vote.
Over two-thirds of those questioned felt an EU-exit would leave them worse off, with only 14% of respondents thinking they would be better off.

Out of these, Catholics and those identifying themselves as Irish were significantly more in favour of remaining in the EU, and more likely than Protestants or those who identify as British, to think that the EU exit will leave them worse off.
