their very strong commitment to being in the EU alienates them to 52% of voters
Possibly, depending on how much notice you take of the recent batch of surveys in which brexiteers are whining about "we didn't vote to leave if it's going to cost us, personally, actual money" (wtf did they think they were voting for then FFS?????).

But one might also point out that if the LibDems were to acquire the support of "only" the 48% remainers (given that all other parties in England are now for #brexit) that would be lots more support than they've had at most points during the last century.
