The majority of British voters back Theresa May’s clean Brexit blueprint
The YouGov survey was carried out after the Prime Minister's speech on Tuesday in which she confirmed Britain will leave the EU single market and that although she wants an ambitious new partnership with Europe, she will walk away without a deal rather than take a bad one.
More than half, 55 per cent, of voters think Mrs May's plan will be good for Britain.
Just 19 per cent thought it was bad news for the country and 26 per cent had no opinion.
Britons also have confidence in her negotiating skills, with 47 per cent thinking she can secure the kind of outcome she set out against 38 per cent thinking she cannot.
Nearly half, 48 per cent, agreed with her that "no deal is better than a bad deal" and 55 per cent that she should be prepared to walk away, while just 17 per cent would rather take a poor agreement than have none at all.

However, only 20 per cent of voters think EU leaders will agree her 12 objectives while 56 per cent think they will not and a quarter are unsure.
Nearly 60 per cent of people overall back Mrs May's plan
Nearly 60 per cent of people overall back Mrs May's plan to leave the EU single market and customs union.
But it is a divisive issue.
Most of those who voted in last June's referendum to leave the EU support leaving both trading arrangements, but more Remain voters want to stay in the single market and are split about the wider customs union tariff-free trading zone.
