Americans do not want a wall on the southwest border, and they will blame President Donald Trump if the government shuts down over funding for one, according to the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll.

Quinnipiac found just 43 percent support a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, compared to 54 percent who oppose it. That same number think a wall is unnecessary for border security, while 44 percent think it is necessary. Republicans were far more likely to support a wall, 86 percent for to 14 percent against, than Democrats, 8 percent for to 90 percent opposed. Women are more likely to oppose a wall, 57 percent to 40 percent, as are men to a lesser extent, with 47 percent supporting a wall.

A strong majority, 62 percent, think the government should not be shut down over funding for a border wall, while 34 percent support a shutdown. Republicans tend to support a shutdown at 59 percent, and were the only demographic to do so. Most Americans would blame President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans in the case of a shutdown, at 51 percent.

"A blunt holiday greeting card for President Donald Trump: Don't build a border wall and don't shut down the government to try to get it done," Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director Tim Malloy said.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,147 voters across the country from Dec. 12-17, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
