Referendum blues

Ever careful not to be seen as partisan in the Brexit debate, the BBC sallies into the streets to find out what ‘ordinary people’ think.  Presumably they edit the pieces so that we get a truly unbiased view of what the vox pop is saying.  What is astonishing is the number of times respondents claim that they do not know which way to vote in the referendum because they do not feel adequately informed.  Given the amount of coverage in the media, how can this be?  Where have they been? If they end up in the polling booth with only a very superficial knowledge of the issues involved, how far does that invalidate the result?
