With the ongoing government shutdown now in its 33rd day, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found that President Trump's disapproval rating reached an all-time high of 57% — against a 40% approval rating.

By the numbers: The poll finds that Trump's key policy driving the shutdown — the construction of a border wall — remains divisive among Americans as 43% support its construction while 49% oppose it. But, perhaps most concerning for Trump's strategy, just 7% of those who oppose a wall would choose to fund it if it were the only way to end the shutdown, compared to 72% who oppose that strategy to ending the stalemate.

Editor's note: This post has been corrected to reflect that the poll question regarding funding a border wall as the only way out of a shutdown was limited to those who oppose the policy.

Rural America has its own coronavirus problem

Axios Re:Cap digs into the pandemic's urban-rural divide with microbiologist Amber Schmidtke, who has found that coronavirus-related morbidity is higher in many of Georgia's rural counties than in Atlanta.
