For all of you who think that the Democrats made a “good deal” with Republicans to stop the government shutdown over the promises about a potential Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) deal, we offer this poll from Morning Consult/Politico.

As the story from Morning Consult states:

nationwide survey found that in the hours leading up to government funding running dry, voters were evenly split at 42 percent when asked whether passing a bill to grant protections to the young immigrants was worth a shutdown. After federal agencies began furloughing non-essential employees, more Americans sided with Democratic lawmakers —47 percent to 38 percent— when asked the same immigration question in a Jan. 20-21 poll.
