Five percent clicked the ‘don’t know’ option, amounting to 207 of the vote that took place on October 28, from 7pm until 10pm.
Comments reflected the result of the poll.
One frustrated commenter said: “Just when you think you can’t be any more appalled and disgusted by this useless and totally duplicitous PM, government and Parliament, your feelings suddenly double in intensity once again.
Brexiteers have lost hope of Brexit being delivered by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s new deadline
Mr Johnson needed 320 votes for the motion to pass
“As there is no democratic vehicle to effect change, it could be that we will only ever Leave if we do it the hard way.”
Another commented: “Not with this bunch of MPs. They fear the rest of the world, and which to continue to be ruled by the protectionist EU.”
A fourth said: “ONLY with the Brexit Party in power.”

Another added: “This is going take years and years to sort out and is certainly going to delay and disrupt the vision of the EU project forever.”
A sixth comment read: “We will never leave as long as we have MP’s and ministers we have now a complete change of leadership and government is needed and that can only be with Nigel Farage and the Brexit party.”
Less than 24 hours after Mr Johnson got the delay to Brexit, he was again denied a general election after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and his Brexit-blocking MPs abstained from voting on the motion, officially killing-off the Prime Minister’s plans.
Mr Corbyn instructed MPs to abstain instead of voting for or against a major ballot, which failed to receive a two-thirds majority with 299/70.

Mr Johnson needed 435 votes for the motion to pass to allow Britain to go to the polling stations and finally end the Brexit deadlock. Addressing Mr Corbyn directly, Mr Johnson said: “I think frankly the electorate will find his behaviour utterly bewildering.”
But it would appear all may not be lost in the Brexit battle.
Mr Johnson will table a one-line motion first mooted by the Lib Dems and SNP now that this evening’s vote has failed.
The motion would allow No10 to bypass the Fixed Term Parliament Act (FTPA) and call an election.

Tomorrow Mr Johnson will put forward a one-line motion calling for a general election, requiring just a simple majority.
The motion does hold more risks for No10 than the FTPA, however. It is susceptible to amendments, which could desiccate the Government’s election plot.
A Number 10 source this afternoon said: “Tonight is Labour’s last chance to have an election with Brexit done – they can vote tonight for the 12th and get Brexit done before Parliament is dissolved.
“If not, we will introduce a Bill almost identical to the SNP Bill tomorrow and we will have a pre-Christmas election anyway.
Brexiteers are sceptical of the new deadline
“This Parliament has repeatedly failed to respect its promise to respect the referendum.
“Millions of families and businesses can’t plan because of constant delays. We need a new Parliament by Christmas so we can Get Brexit Done in January and the country can move on.”
Mr Johnson has written and signed a letter to EU chief Donald Tusk to “confirm the UK’s formal agreement” to extending Brexit to January 31, 2020.
