Campaigning organisation Represent Us commissioned ICM Unlimited to poll the voting intentions of the British public. The poll tested how people would vote in a general election tomorrow and in the scenario of Brexit being delayed beyond 31 October 2019 and a general election being held shortly after, while Britain is still a member of the EU.
The full question wording for both questions is shown in the data tables.

ICM Unlimited interviewed a representative sample of 2,041 GB adults (18+) online between 30 August and 03 September 2019. The data has been weighted to the profile of all adults aged 18+ in Great Britain and is weighted by age, gender, social grade, household tenure, work status, and region. The data is also weighted by 2017 general election vote and 2016 EU referendum vote.
ICM’s voting intention methodology has changed since our last poll. A full methodological note and details of the changes can be found in the last sheet of the data tables file.
All polls are subject to a wide range of potential sources of error. On the basis of the historical record of the polls at recent general elections, there is a 9 in 10 chance that the true value of a party’s support lies within 4 points of the estimates provided by a poll, and a 2 in 3 chance that they lie within 2 points.
