What do U.S. voters think about the ongoing government shutdown?


In an online survey this past weekend we took a quick dip into the field to get a cursory sense of how voters were perceiving the end to the government shutdown. Based on online interviews with 384 voters weighted for key demographics, we found:


Voters overwhelmingly support the deal to end the government shutdown with 79% supporting it including 48% who strongly support it, compared with only 21% who opposed the deal.

Government shutdown appears to be helping Democrats oddly


Democrats in Congress are seen as getting the better end of the deal by a nearly 3 to 1 margin (48% to 17%) over President Trump and the Republicans in Congress.

The government shutdown does not appear to be convincing voters that Trump will get border wall funding. Voters are pessimistic that the wall will be built. Just under 1 in 3 (32%) voters think President Trump will get the funding to build his wall by the end of his term in office.
