National Survey of 1,020 U.S. Likely Voters
Conducted September 19-21, 2023
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Congress has until September 30 to pass a spending bill or there will be a partial government shutdown. Would you rather have Congress avoid a partial government shutdown by authorizing government spending at a higher level, or would you prefer a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree to either cut spending or keep it at its current level?



2* Some members of Congress want to include in the spending bill a measure to secure the U.S. border against illegal immigration. Do you support or oppose making border security part of the negotiations for a new spending bill?
