Roughly 35 percent of Americans in a new Politico-Morning Consult poll, say they believe passing an infrastructure bill should be a top priority for members of Congress, lower than several other issues.

The study was conducted between Friday and Monday, shortly before President Biden ended negotiations with a key GOP senator as both sides failed to reach a deal. Biden has shifted talks to a bipartisan group of senators.
