Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The poll was run for campaigning Conservative Party think-tank Onward. The full report (or rather presentation)is here, and quite interesting in many ways. Worth a scroll through.

The responses to questions on democracy and authoritarian government are surprising. There may be a methodological flaw, maybe not. Possibly this reflects frustration with Theresa May and her long argy-bargy with Parliament, which may to younger voters appear totally out of touch (are they wrong?).

From the Onward paper: "Hanbury conducted an online smartphone poll of 5,073 people in a representative GB sample between 21 and 29 June 2019."

So the results are based on the differences between the election May called and the vote for the European Parliamentary election in May, 2019. For starters it is not an apples to apples comparison.
