More about when you decided, rather than how you voted.

This suggests that the campaign made relatively little difference, at least for members of this forum. I wonder if that was true of the electorate in general?

Both campaigns were done badly so I imagine for most of the population they just went with what they believed in beforehand, rather than being swayed by either side.

Before and no

I agree with Dan, really I expect it could have been different and not to be a "remoaner" but if both campaigns had been better it could have been a different result, and I don't say that because it didn't go how I wanted, I say that because of how close it was. I expect both sides had more than enough uneducated voters who could have swayed it to Remain or a larger margin for Leave had the campaigns been better and actually been able to convince those who weren't sure or didn't know much.

Both campaigns were terrible. The Leave campaign failed to give any real idea of their post-EU vision while the Remain campaign concentrated almost entirely on speculation about the consequences of leaving to the exclusion of the positive things that membership has given us. They also failed to mention the one of the reasons for the EU being formed on the first place was to bring peace to Europe.

Why would I regret making the correct choice?

I decided before this unnecessary shitfest began that I would vote to remain in the EU. Primarily because the list of benefits we get makes war and peace look short. It also doesn't help that the only things the leave campaign didn't lie about were statements that were thinly concealed racism/xenophobia or repurposed actual nazi imagery.

In general terms, rather than for any specific individual... : Changes of circumstances, either personal, or national, is something that comes to mind.

The result of the referendum proves this 'shitfest' *was* needed, given that over half of those who voted disagreed with our membership of the EU, and whose views were being ignored.

Yes, it can be argued that Remainers views are now being ignored, but by that logic, it was surely wrong for Leavers views to have been ignored for so long, too?

As for the campaign, the voting in this poll hints that the campaign actually made very little difference.

Didn't know what it was until May before it or so. Living in an area where Remain was a foregone conclusion it was really something to see the debates in those final days and how the country ultimately voted. Felt mad then and has felt mad ever since. Very much an English-headed campaign and ultimately I feel result based on certain voters' feelings of glory days and English exceptionalism, plus whoever else it picked up along the way.
