This breakfast briefing will explore the latest trends in the race to win Britain's EU referendum and the key factors that are likely to determine the outcome. Discussion points will include what hurdles face the ‘leave’ camp and how might they win? How important is David Cameron to the vote? What do we know about how voters navigate referendums? And how might the race have impact on the political parties over the longer-term?

This briefing is for political editors, journalists, observers and researchers who are following the debate and want access to the latest evidence on how this race is unfolding.
