Voters last night threw their weight behind Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.

On the eve of today’s dramatic Commons vote on his withdrawal plan, 50 per cent said MPs should back it.

The Survation poll for the Daily Mail showed 38 per cent were against the deal with 12 per cent undecided.

The survey found a surge in support for the Tories following the Prime Minister’s breakthrough at this week’s EU summit. They are now on 32 per cent, five points up on their tally three weeks ago. Optimism was mounting in No 10 last night that MPs will back the agreement. A source said: ‘It is incredibly close, but it is doable.’

However the situation became even more tense when Sir Oliver Letwin tabled a plan to force Mr Johnson to seek another delay to Brexit. The move by the Tory former Cabinet minister, which is set to be backed by Labour and other opposition parties, could deny the PM a clear-cut vote on his deal today.

On a day of high drama:

France’s Emmanuel Macron piled pressure on Remainer MPs by warning he could veto any further Brexit delay; Tory aides acknowledged that Sir Oliver’s move could force Mr Johnson to consider seeking another delay; Seven Labour MPs publicly backed the deal, despite threats that they could be deselected – a further 15 are said to be considering the move. Campaigners pushing for a second referendum were planning a huge march on Parliament today; Hardline ‘Spartan’ MPs prepared to meet this morning to decide whether to back Mr Johnson’s deal, amid signs that a hardcore will refuse; The Governor of the Bank of England threw his weight behind the deal, describing it as ‘good news’; David Trimble, an architect of the Good Friday Agreement, urged the DUP to drop its opposition; Mr Johnson held out an olive branch to Labour MPs by pledging an automatic right to vote on whether to adopt future EU laws on workers’ rights; Socialist leaders across the EU urged Jeremy Corbyn to back the deal;

Today’s poll shows that a total of 47 per cent of people say they support the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal, while 38 per cent say they are against it.

Voters were also in no doubt as to who blinked first in the EU talks – with 52 per cent saying the UK gave most ground. Only 20 per cent think Brussels backed down. A total of 47 per cent believe Mr Johnson’s plan should go to a referendum, compared with 44 against the idea.
