Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : Watching from the Senate, which has been working to pass all 12 of the regular bills needed to fund government operations through committees ahead of floor votes starting next week, Republicans hope cooler heads in the House will prevail on all fronts.
51% : But Trump's allies among House Republicans are working furiously to unearth any links between Biden and his son's business as they portray Hunter Biden as trading on the family name for financial enrichment and work to erode public support for the president ahead of the presidential election.
44% : The conservatives want to beef up border security and address what Republicans deride as the "weaponization" of the Justice Department's prosecutions, including of those charged in the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.
43% : Even a stopgap measure to simply keep government funding at existing levels for a few months while Congress tries to finish the spending bills is a nonstarter for McCarthy's right flank.
41% : If not, they say they will oppose a temporary measure, called a continuing resolution, or CR, to keep government running.
28% : And GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski said those who don't think a federal shutdown of government operations is a big deal ought to visit her state of Alaska and see "real life.
22% : Facing a backlash from conservatives who want to slash government funding, McCarthy may be able to ease the way by turning to another hard-right priority, launching a Biden impeachment inquiry over the business dealings of the president's son, Hunter Biden.
