Seems the polls say no one likes the deal and most now want No Brexit with a majority wanting a further referendum

Unfortunately I know from experience just how easy it would be to manipulate poll results to get the desired figures. I'm not saying that you are wrong, but it is something to keep in mind.

No
interesting to see you reject the 2016 referendum 52:48 result as a basis for saying most are in favour of leaving

Not my intent

But your not calling 52% most does rather lead to that assumption that you would not consider the 2016 vote by 52% to represent most

"most" implies nearly all not just a bit more than half, In the 2016 referendum the majority of people voted to leave, not most people. In our system that's enough.

Well it's a clear polarised position with no one liking the deal and the centre of gravity very much on the hard Brexit if they won't give more side.

No surprise really but thought it'd be worth finding out the VP position seeing as I was running same poll elsewhere and that is similarly polarised but more evenly

Only in the tightest of definitions. in common use it means nearly all, the lion's share or the preponderance.
