Congress has until Saturday to enact a spending bill that would prevent a partial shutdown of the federal government.
Forty percent (40%) of voters would rather have Congress avoid a partial government shutdown by authorizing government spending at a higher level.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
Forty-eight percent (48%) would prefer a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree to either cut spending or keep it at its current level, and 12% are not sure.
Eighty percent (80%) of Republicans, 50% of Democrats and 61% of unaffiliated voters at least somewhat support including border security in the spending bill.
Men (51%) are more likely than women voters (45%) to prefer a government shutdown instead of higher spending.
Majorities of both men (66%) and women voters (61%) at least somewhat support including border security in the spending bill.
Among voters who "strongly support" including border security in the spending bill, 70% would prefer a government shutdown instead of higher spending.
