A partial shutdown of the US government, which is based on a dispute over a proposed wall on the US border with Mexico, has further polarized US voters, with support for the barrier moving in opposite directions depending on one’s political leanings, a new Pew Research Center poll revealed on Wednesday.

“Overall opinion on the wall is little changed from last year, but these views have never been more sharply divided along partisan lines,” a press release summarizing the poll said. “Republican support for the wall is at record high, while Democratic support has reached a new low.”
