Morning Consult, in partnership with POLITICO, ran a survey of almost 2,000 voters. This select group of participants answered a range of questions, including a number of questions about the shutdown that ended on Friday.

A majority of those polled believe that President Trump is responsible for the shutdown, while 34% say they believe Democrats in Congress are responsible.

A large majority (72%) indicated that they either somewhat or strongly support the agreement that re-opened the government, even though it didn’t include funding for a border wall.

When asked about a second shutdown after the February 14 deadline for a funding bill, 59% of respondents said that they either somewhat or strongly oppose another government shutdown.

Should the government shut down again, the breakdown of who respondents believed to be at fault is nearly identical to who they blamed for the first shutdown.
