Yet again it seems that the youth is the future.

Pollsters have been keeping tabs on the upcoming European Referendum since the government announced their plans to let Britons choose whether or not to go it alone in the world.

Pro-European campaigns will rightly be unnerved by some of the latest statistics which offer an insight into not only how we will vote, but also who will be voting.  It has emerged that young people are amongst the most likely to vote in favour of remaining in the EU, with 53% of 18-34-year-olds identifying themselves as pro-European, whilst only 29% of the same group would vote to leave the EU.

Now, you’re probably asking just why the ‘In’ camp would be so worried by this.

They’ll get more votes, right?

Well, not exactly. As is often true in elections (the Scottish referendum being a notable exception) youth turnout is predicted to be poor, with only 52% of young people having said they would definitely be voting on 23rd June, potentially skewing the ‘In’ vote and handing the match to team Farage – and the other ‘Brexit’ backers.

Not to worry though, the pollsters never get it right anyway….
