The landlord panel survey from the National Landlords Association (NLA) is published a little over a week before the referendum on the 23d June which will decide whether or not the United Kingdom stays in the EU.

A series of weekend opinion polls suggest that the pro-Brexit "Leave" campaign is beginning to move clear, with an opinion poll commissioned by The Independent newspaper, carried out by ORB, finding that 55% of respondents now meant to vote "Leave".

One poll indicated a 19-point leave for Brexit, prompting the London-based Daily Express to headline a story "End of European Union rule FINALLY in sight".

An ICM poll for The Guardian on Monday gave the Brexit campaign a six-point lead, with Leave on 53% and Remain on 47%, while an ORB poll for The Daily Telegraph has put "Leave" on 49% among those certain to vote on June the 23d, one point ahead of Remain at 48%.

The ICM polls excluded respondents who answered "don't know", but the public opinion researcher said the polls showed uncertain answers were falling in number.

By our estimation, polls of this size and type should get within 2.5 percentage points of the true proportion of voters now intending to vote Leave (and the same for Remain) but that means that the poll result may end up anywhere within a five percentage point range (+/-2.5% from the true value).

However, the first jitters began a fortnight ago when ICM reported for the first time that leave had taken its first ever lead in one of its phone polls.

Finally, consulting firm ORB said 49 percent of respondents supported a Brexit, while 48 percent were in favor of the United Kingdom remaining a part of the European Union.

With voting day just over a week away, it seems many people are either changing their minds or switching allegiances or have finally decided how they will vote.
