There are 18% who say they predicted it would go well and still believe that, while a further 4% say they thought it would go badly but think it is progressing well.

Only 2% of remainers say they expected Brexit to go well and believe it is going well.

YouGov polled 3,851 UK adults at the beginning of this week about their attitudes to Brexit.

Along party lines, 75% of Labour voters and 91% of Lib Dems think Brexit is going badly.

But the majority of Conservative and Ukip voters are also disappointed.

A total of 64% of Tory voters are unhappy with how Brexit is going, and a massive 86% of Ukip supporters are also displeased.

Meanwhile, prime minister Theresa May’s Brexit war cabinet will meet again on Tuesday as discussions over how to resolve the deadlock on the customs union continue.

Members of two ministerial working groups spent Monday discussing possible tweaks to the “customs partnership” and “maximum facilitation” plans that have divided the cabinet, while Mrs May herself briefed Tory MPs on details of the two options.

The EU is pressing for “substantive progress” from Britain on the future of the Irish border in time for a crunch European Council summit just six weeks away.

But the meeting of the Brexit sub-committee is thought unlikely to unite behind a solution when it meets on Tuesday.

Under a customs partnership, the UK would collect tariffs for Brussels. The alternative model being considered by the cabinet is known as maximum facilitation, or “Max Fac”, which would rely on new technology and trusted trader schemes.

Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, told ministers from the remaining 27 member states that “little progress” had been made on the issues of Ireland and governance since the council last met in March.

There were two rounds of negotiations before the “key rendezvous” of the June European Council summit, he said.
