Poll: 55% say wall funding isn't worth a shutdown

In the Nov. 15-18 survey, 55 percent of registered voters said increased wall funding would not be important enough to warrant a shutdown of the federal government, compared with 31 percent who said it would be.

That included majorities of Democrats and independents, while Republicans were somewhat more divided. While nearly half (49 percent) of GOP voters supported the idea, 34 percent did not.

Funding for a number of government agencies – including the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department and the Justice Department – will run out in December if lawmakers and the president do not reach a deal, which would force a partial government shutdown and furlough workers deemed “non-essential.” Trump signed into law funding for major health, veteran and defense programs in late September.
