Who backs Brexit and who wants to stay

Grateful to Dan Hamilton who stood with me in the 2014 European elections in the North West for sharing this graphic which shows the preponderance of Remain (at the top) and Leave (at the bottom) support among particular parts of the electorate:

This graph is also interesting: it shows which characteristics, according to a poll commissioned by Lord Ashcroft, more people associate with the Remain and Leave campaigns.

Most polls show them, but I always did wonder, Who are the 6% or so of the "UK Independence party" that want to remain in the EU?

Yes, most polls show a few such people. They presumably support UKIP for reasons other than their stance in EU membership which does seem strange.
