And while 52 percent said that Obama is not cooperating enough with the GOP to end the shutdown, 63 percent said Republicans aren't doing enough to cooperate with the president.

Republicans have assailed Obama for his refusal to negotiate the terms of a continuing resolution that would re-open the shuttered government. Obama, meanwhile, has said that he will negotiate but only after Congress passes a bill to fund the government.

Polls conducted before and after the shutdown have consistently shown that the public holds Republicans responsible for the situation.

The AP-GfK poll was conducted Oct. 3-7 using online interviews with 1,227 adults. It has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
