With just over a week to go before the so-called Brexit vote in the UK, there is a lot of concern among opponents who do not want Britain to leave the European Union. That's because a number of new polls show increasing support for a Brexit.

An ICM poll for The Guardian found Brexit supporters are leading by 53 to 47 percent. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson looks at public opinion and also a new controversial ad from the pro-Brexit camp, with the BBC's Andrew Walker.
