Twice as many people from Northern Ireland would vote to remain in the UK rather than for Irish unity, according to a new survey. However, the Irish Times opinion poll also shows there is a majority of more than four to one in favour of unity in the Republic. The two polls were carried out among more than 1,000 voters in Northern Ireland and the Republic in August and September of this year. Half of all those who responded in Northern Ireland said they would vote against unity, including 21% from a Catholic background. Among Protestant respondents in Northern Ireland, 78% were opposed to unity.
