While only 14 percent of Conservatives are in favor of holding a second Brexit vote, the other main parties are hugely in favor of it. To put it in numbers, 91 percent of Liberal Democrats are for it, 87 percent of Scottish National party, and 78 percent of Labour party. At least these are the results based on YouGov survey. In case of Tories, they are more with May.

When it comes to the question of staying in EU in general, only 25 percent of Tories favor staying in the EU while the percentage for the three opposition parties is 95 (Liberal Democrats), 87 (Labour), and 96 percent (Scottish Nationalists).

The professor of politics at Queen Mary, Tim Bale, said that "Britain's party members are the lifeblood and the foot-soldiers of our democracy. That doesn't necessarily mean they look like or think like their parties' voters -- or, indeed, look or think like each other. The Tory grassroots in particular are something of a breed apart from their Labour, Lib Dem and SNP counterparts."

Tony Blair said on BBC Today program that "People are entitled to think again. In 2016 you knew you wanted to get out but we didn't yet know the terms."
