Is this Britain's most stupid voter?

A man who voted for Britain to leave the European Union has admitted that he's "shocked" because he didn't think his vote would count.
The Leave voter, known only as Adam, was asked for his reaction to the Brexit result during the BBC's live rolling coverage of events.
Speaking from Manchester, he told broadcaster, Victoria Derbyshire he is "worried" because he thought Remain would win.
He said: "I’m a bit shocked to be honest.
"I’m shocked that we actually have voted to Leave, I didn’t think that was going to happen.
"My vote, I didn’t think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to Remain, and the David Cameron resignation has blown me away to be honest.
"I think the period of uncertainty that we’re going to have for the next couple of months, that’s just been magnified now.
"So yeah, quite worried."
Are you actually joking, man on @BBCNews?! 'I voted to Leave, didn't think my vote would matter'. LITERALLY UNBELIEVABLE— Louisa Yates (@louisayates) 24 June 2016
Twitter was quick to slate the Leave voter, claiming that he doesn't understand how democracy works.
@Amijesuspablo tweeted: "How stupid are some people? Adam from #Manchester votes to leave but never thought we'd leave and his vote wouldn't count... #adamisstupid."

@ArsendWenger posted: "Adam from Manchester didn't realise voting out meant voting out. Now he's concerned. The average Brit, ladies and gentleman."
the amount of people on bbc news saying they voted leave and are now shocked and regret that decision is ridiculous— evelyn (@otpfond) 24 June 2016
