Americans' Message to D.C. on The Looming Shutdown: Don't

New poll places majority of blame on Trump, GOP lawmakers

Americans have a clear message to Washington as the government hurtles toward a partial shutdown on Friday: Don't.

By a double-digit margin, 54 percent to 29 percent, those surveyed in a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll say they oppose the shutdown that President Trump has threatened if Congress doesn't agree to his demand for $5 billion in funding for a border wall. 

Who would bear the blame? By nearly 2-1, Americans would blame Trump and the Republicans, not congressional Democrats. Forty-three percent would blame the president and the GOP, while 24 percent would hold congressional Democrats responsible. Thirty percent would blame both sides equally responsible.
