A Dec. 27, poll conducted by Reuters/Ipsos reveals that more Americans blame Trump than congressional Democrats for the government shutdown.

After almost two weeks since Donald Trump partially shut down the government over funding for his border wall, do date, the wall is no closer to becoming a reality as Pelosi and the congressional Democrats hold firm on “NO wall money.”

The poll cites 47percent of adults hold Trump responsible, while 33 percent blame Democrats in Congress according to the Dec. 21-25 Reuters poll. Seven percent of Americans blamed congressional Republicans.

Trump has cemented his $5-billion-dollar demand via Twitter posts for a wall estimated to cost up to 23 billion—a wall that Trump has said in the past, Mexico would pay for.

The shutdown could feasibly move well into January and the impact of the shutdown, albeit limited so far due to holiday vacations, may see the effect soon as government agencies are already beginning to notify the public about disruptions in services.

Democrats take over majority control of the House on Jan. 3, and the public is likely to see some firm action on a spending measure of disaster relief funding.

Trump stated earlier in December that he would be “proud to shut down the government” over wall funding.

Several polls conducted since May show results citing a majority of Americans that do not favor building a wall.

The Quinnipiac University Poll-June 14-17, 2018: 39 percent support building a wall, 58 percent are opposed.

Pew Research Center. June 5-12, 2018: 40 percent support building a wall, 56 percent are opposed.

CBS News Poll. May 3-6, 2018: 38 percent support building a wall, 59 percent are opposed.

One poll shows a slight majority in favor of building a wall.
