Only 23 percent of those polled were Republican.
This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Jan. 15-18, 2018, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,005 adults. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 31-23-40 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.
39% identify as Independent, 32% identify as Democrats and 23% as Republicans. How do you think it should have been conducted?

Polls are the least trustworthy source of information in this country
LOL - the standard line here when people don't like when the poll results are

From the link

As is often the case in Washington mud fights, political independents make the difference: They’re more likely to blame the Republican side by 46-25 percent. But there’s also a broad gender gap, with comparative GOP vulnerability among independent women and even among Republican women – notable results a day before the 2018 women’s marches on Staurday.

Partisan gaps also disfavor the GOP in this survey, produced for ABC News by Langer Research Associates: Seventy-eight percent of Democrats say they’d blame Trump and the GOP caucus for a shutdown, while fewer Republicans, 66 percent, say they’d blame the Democrats in Congress. And women are 16 points more apt than men to say they'd blame Trump and the GOP

Ideological divisions are typical, and again include gender differences, with both moderate women and conservative women more likely than their male counterparts to say they’d blame Trump and the GOP for a shutdown.

Further, there’s a split within conservative ranks. Among strongly conservative Americans, 68 percent say they would blame the Democrats in Congress, 15 percent Trump and the Republicans. Among “somewhat” conservatives, blame on the Democrats eases to 45 percent, while intention to blame Trump and the Republicans jumps sharply, to 32 percent

Americans more likely to blame Trump, Republicans if government shuts down: Poll - ABC News

So this poll is a reflection of different political views and gender.

It pretty much is in line with a WP poll


Among registered voters:

Trump/Rs 47
Dems 30

Among independents:

Trump/Rs 46
Dems 25

Moderates:

Trump/Rs 49
Dems 24

It's so funny to watch the blame game. The facts are the facts. Trump is giving them virtually everything they asked for. All he wants is a barrier, wall, fence, etc...

They would rather have the 3.6 Million Illegal Aliens + the estimated 8+ million additional through chain migration over the next decade than to ever make a deal. The last thing they want is a wall.

I have to say, if we can't have a wall, I want EVERY SINGLE ONE of the illegal aliens OUT. ALL OF THEM. If there is no deal to stop this from happening again, like it did to Reagan, then it's time to load up trains and ship them out. The have broken our nation's laws. We are a nation of laws. We will change the law to accommodate them, if we can ensure this abuse of our country is stopped.

All the Democrats see if 11+ million votes over the next decade. All the scumbag Republican establishment want is cheap labor for their corporate cronies.

They were prepared to give him over a billion dollars for the wall, but he said no deal if it involved cutting Haitians any slack.
