It could be a clog in the drain line or in the toilet itself.
A toilet has its own built-in trap, so start there.
Get a crank toilet auger, feed the auger up into the trap, and crank away.
If whatever is clogging it cannot be dislodged from the bowl side, you will have to pull the toilet and try to dislodge it from the underneath side (and snake the drain while the toilet is up.
See "Repair/Fix-It" above for illustrated how-to (Plumbing section).
Good luck!
