The plurality of Americans would blame Democrats if the government is shut down Friday night, according to the results of a new poll.

Key results from the CNN poll:

  • 31 percent said Democrats in Congress would be to blame for a shutdown.
  • 26 percent said Republicans in Congress would be to blame.
  • 21 percent said President Donald Trump would be to blame.
  • 10 percent said all politicians would be to blame.
  • 56 percent said avoiding a government shutdown is more important than coming to a solution on the DACA issue. 34 percent said the opposite.

Lawmakers in the Senate must come to an agreement to keep the government funded before midnight Saturday. If no agreement is struck, the government will shut down.

The House passed a short-term funding bill Thursday night that will keep the government open through Feb. 16. The Senate has yet to pass that bill or any versions of it.
