Attitudes to EU market access post-Brexit in the United Kingdom (UK) 2016

This statistic shows results from an online survey conducted in Great Britain in November 2016 on whether Britain not signing a new trade deal with the European Union (EU) once it has left the EU would respect the results of the EU referendum. Two thirds of respondents thought that such an outcome would indeed respect the referendum.

If Britain leaves the EU and does not sign any new trade deal with the rest of the EU, would that respect the result of the referendum?*

Supplementary notes

This question was phrased by the source as follows:
"Britain leaves the EU and does not sign any new trade deal with the rest of the EU, relying on World Trade Organisation rules. Britain does not have automatic access to European markets, and there are tariffs or other barriers on many British exports. Britain has full control over our borders and immigration, does not have to follow any EU regulations and does not have to contribute any money to the EU.
Regardless of whether you think it would be good or bad for Britain, do you think this outcome would or would not respect the result of the referendum?"
