Most Don’t Feel Effects of the Shutdown Directly


A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that voters are aware of the partial government shutdown, and have some concerns about it—but feel little impact from it. “Nearly 3 of 4 voters (74%) say they understand the causes of the partial government shutdown either ‘very well’ (37%) or ‘somewhat well’ (37%). Roughly the same number of voters, 79%, categorize the ongoing shutdown as a ‘crisis’ or ‘problem,’ as reflected in last week’s poll. Despite this, when asked about the extent to which they are personally impacted by the shutdown, a majority of voters (66%) say there is ‘not much’ or “no” impact on them or their families.”
