According to the poll, 55 percent of respondents said Trump is to blame for the shutdown and 32 percent said Democrats are mostly to blame. Another 9 percent of respondents said both sides are to blame. 

The poll's results are based on interviews with a random sample of 848 adults on Jan. 10 and Jan. 11. The poll has a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.

The ongoing shutdown was prompted because Trump refused to sign a bill to fund the government that didn't include at least $5 billion for a wall along the southern border.
