Did the killing affect the vote?

Thomas Mair, the killer of Jo Cox MP, told the court yesterday that his name was “Death to traitors. Freedom for Britain.” He is obviously not so much a mental case as a political one — of someone who knew how to get his view into full public awareness. Jo Cox had been strongly in favour of remaining in the EU so, if the killing is going to have an effect on the vote on Thursday — which I suspect it will — then many undecideds could swing it clearly into the remain camp.
