Public opinion on crime rates in the UK post-Brexit, by Brexit vote

This chart illustrates results from an online survey conducted in Great Britain in October 2016 on whether the crime rates in Britain will be higher or lower than they would have been inside the EU, sorted by Brexit vote. Brexiteers were more likely to believe in a decline of crime rates outside of the EU. By contrast, the majority of those who voted 'Remain' thought it will not make a difference to the development of crime rates whether the UK is part of the EU or not.

When Britain leaves the European Union, do you think crime in Britain will be higher or lower than it would have been inside the EU?
