Polling Shows Americans Think Joe Biden Likely Broke the Law – New polling shows that Americans believe President Joe Biden “definitely” or “probably” did something illegal with regard to his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
A Yahoo!/YouGov poll of 1,636 people found that 48% think Biden broke the law regarding Hunter’s business deals, and 31% thought otherwise.
Forty-one percent said they thought Joe Biden was involved in Hunter Biden’s business deals while 31% said they felt he was not.
Forty-seven percent of voters think the president and his family are corrupt compared with 33% who said they did not think he was.
Thirty-nine percent said they thought Joe Biden had done something criminal while 33% said they felt he had not.
Forty-three percent said they thought Joe Biden profited from Hunter’s business deals, and 46% said they approved of the Republican impeachment inquiry to delve deeper into Joe Biden’s involvement in the deals.
Questions About Joe Biden Taking Off
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy launched an impeachment inquiry earlier this month.
It shows that reports about allegations found in the June 2020 FD-1023 form alleging that Biden accepted a $5 million bribe and testimony by Hunter Biden’s business partner Devon Archer have begun to spread.
Archer testified that Joe Biden participated in at least 20 phone calls with his and Hunter Biden’s business partners. He additionally noted that the then vice president participated in two dinners with his son’s Russian mafia-linked oligarchs at Café Milano in Georgetown in 2014 and in 2015.
He also noted that access to Joe Biden was the product they sold to investors.
Tony Bobulinski, another of Hunter Biden’s former business partners, is on the record as describing Joe Biden as the “Chairman” of Biden Inc. An Executive Chairman often is the face of an enterprise who is not involved in the nitty-gritty operations of those under him.
“There are hundreds of data points that Joe Biden was acting in – in a capitalistic term, I would say the chairman,” Bobulinski told former Fox host Tucker Carlson last year.
Senate Minority Whip Sen. John Thune told The Associated Press following a briefing with House Republicans that “there’s enough smoke there that there are legitimate questions.”
Voters See Trump As More Corrupt
Voters, however, told pollsters they believe that Donald Trump and his family are more corrupt than Joe Biden and his family by a 41% to 39% margin. Only Hispanic votes and those over 45 thought Biden was more corrupt.
Similarly, 41% thought Trump was more corrupt, while 36% thought Biden was more corrupt.
Only 28% said they thought Trump should be allowed to be president if convicted of any of the 91 counts against him.
A total of 57% of all voters said they believed that Biden was not fit to serve another term, while only 27% said they thought Biden was fit. Fifty-two percent said Biden’s age was a “big problem.”
By contrast, 39% said they thought Donald Trump was fit for another term, and 48% said they did not think he was fit.
Biden and Trump remain tied in the latest poll at 44% each. It is clear that voters regard Trump and Biden as corrupt; however, the edge at the moment leans toward Biden due to the criminal charges that have been filed against Trump.
Next year’s election likely will be an unprecedented race to the bottom, with each side highlighting the other’s possible corruption.
