How @DailyMailUK twisted the results of @Survation poll and created a nice little frontpage to support Theresa May with some beautiful YESes in red and some lovely supporting words, even though the front page does not actually reflects the results of the poll...
So, let's have a closer look at some of the questions asked and the ACTUAL answers of voters...
Q1. When UK Govt's negotiations over the terms of Britain's exit from #EU are complete, would you support or oppose holding a People's Vote - a referendum - asking the public their view?

- Support 48% 👈
- Oppose 34%
- Don't know 18%

Large margin 14% to support a #PeoplesVote!
Q3. From what you have seen/heard so far, do you support or oppose UK Govt's agreement?

- Strongly support 9% 🤔
- Somewhat support 28% 🤔
- Neither support nor oppose 26%
- Somewhat oppose 13%
- Strongly oppose 22%
- Don't know 2%

Who do you think you are kidding @DailyMailUK?
Q4. MPs are to vote on Government's Brexit withdrawal agreement on the 11th December, how would you like MPs to vote?

- For the deal 41% 🤔
- Against the deal 38%
- Don't know 22%

Britons "back" May's deal?
That's 41%, margin of only 3%!
Now, interesting question missing from the front page of @DailyMailUK:
Q5. If the Government was to lose the vote, which of the following comes closest to your view?

- Theresa May should resign as PM 48% 👈
- Theresa May should not resign as PM 40%
- Don't know 12%

Margin of 8%
Not on front page of @DailyMailUK, though interesting!
Q6. EU said Brexit agreement is the only one on table. If Govt was to lose the vote in House of Commons, what do you think EU would do?

- Offer UK more concessions 38%
- Not offer UK more concessions 44% 👈
- Don't know 18%
Q7. If there was referendum tomorrow with following options on ballot paper, which would you support?

- The government's Brexit agreement 35%
- Leaving the EU without a deal 41%
- Don't know 24%

That's not looking like what the @DailyMailUK's headline says at all....
Q8. If there was referendum tomorrow with following options on ballot paper, which would you support?

- Government's Brexit agreement 37%
- #Remain in EU 46%
- Don't know 17%

Now this is the bombshell, @DailyMailUK!
That would explain why Theresa May refuses a #PeoplesVote...
Now, get ready for the really big bombshell....
Q9. If there was referendum tomorrow with following options on ballot paper, which would you support?

- Leaving EU with no deal 40%
- Remain in EU 50%
- Don't know 11%

THAT should be front page news!
#Remain would win: 10% margin!
Q10/11/12. If there was referendum tomorrow, with following 3 options on ballot paper, which would you support? (1st choice option only)

- Remain 44%
- Govt Brexit Agreement 22%
- Leaving EU with no deal 29%

#Remain would be their first choice for 44% of voters in #PeoplesVote.
Q14. Do you agree 'Govt's Brexit agreement is not ideal but it is better than any other option available'

Strongly agree 15% 🤔
Somewhat agree 37%
Neither agree nor disagree 23%
Somewhat disagree 6%
Strongly disagree 13%
Don't know 5%

You took a huge shortcut there @DailyMailUK
Q17. If Govt loses the vote in House of Commons there could be a general election & potential Labour Government. Which would you prefer?

- Governments Brexit agreement passing HoC 46%
- Labour Govt 31% 🤔
- Don't know 24%

Careful @DailyMailUK, they don't favour TM but her plan!
Q18. Who do you trust most to deliver a good deal for the UK on Brexit?

- @Theresa_May 31%
- @JeremyCorbyn 23%
- Neither 37% 👈
- Don't know 10%

Still sure you want to go ahead with the TV debate, guys?
Q29. There are reports that the PM will face Jeremy Corbyn in a tv debate on the Brexit deal. Which of the following comes closest to your view?

- There should be other politicians in the debate 46% 👈
- It should just be @Theresa_May and @JeremyCorbyn 38%
- Don't know 16%

Now, just one last thing @DailyMailUK.........
Where did you find this question?
It is not in @Survation's polls report.........
Have we read the same report or have you just invented that question and that result????

Here is the report with all results:…
Interesting to see that, unable to change the printed front page for obvious reasons, @DailyMailUK has published their article on the @Survation poll with an edit: "humiliating" has gone!

Pic1: Original print version
Pic2: Online version
Pic3: Close up of online version
FYI, the actual wording of the question was:
Q22. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statement? 'If the UK decided to remain in the EU it would damage the UK's international reputation'
