The majority of people in the United Kingdom said they would support a second Brexit referendum, according to a new poll.

A Sky News survey published Monday found that 53 percent of respondents would support holding a referendum allowing them to choose between leaving the European Union (EU) as agreed to in the deal negotiated by the EU, leaving without a deal or remaining in the EU.

Thirty-six percent opposed a second referendum.

Fifty-three percent said they would vote against leaving the EU, while 32 percent would support leaving the EU without a deal. Sixteen percent said they would vote for leaving on the terms of the negotiated deal.

Last month, the leaders of the EU approved a deal for the United Kingdom to leave the EU. If the deal is approved by politicians in the United Kingdom, the country will leave the EU in March.

Voters in the United Kingdom approved a referendum in 2016 to leave the European Union.
