The government shut down for five- and-a-half hours Friday night as Congress wrestled to agree upon a spending bill to keep the government running, but voters would rather see a shutdown until Congress can cut spending.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters would rather have a partial government shutdown until Congress can agree to either cut spending or keep it the same. Just 31% would rather avoid a partial shutdown by authorizing more spending, while 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on February 7-8, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
