...say the (pre-voting day) polls.

"Ipsos MORI found that as 23 June approached, immigration overtook the economy as the most-commonly cited issue that would help people decide how to vote. That could be part of the explanation for the result.
They also found that only 17% believed the Remain campaign's claim that leaving the EU would make households £4,300 per year worse off.
That compared to 45% who believed the Leave claim that Turkey would be fast-tracked into the EU, if we stayed in, with their population given the right of free movement to the UK."
