If Republicans are smart and aggressive, they could be able to use upcoming House hearings to implicate President Biden in his son’s business shenanigans.
That’s a big “if.” But there is bipartisan popular suspicion. Nice to know a few Democrats are sensible, even these days.
According to a Fox News poll:
Nearly three-quarters of voters (72%) think it is important for the Justice Department to investigate the younger Biden’s business dealings with foreign governments — unchanged from the 72% who felt that way in August. That includes majorities of Republicans (88%), independents (74%) and Democrats (54%).
Partisans disagree, however, on what investigations into Hunter Biden’s conduct will reveal. Republicans generally think Hunter Biden did something illegal in his business dealings with Ukraine and China (70%), and that President Biden committed a crime related to his son’s activities (63%). By contrast, just one-in-10 Democrats think Hunter Biden (11%) or Joe Biden (8%) did something illegal.
Overall, 39% think Hunter Biden committed a crime, 31% say he did something unethical but not illegal and 19% believe he did nothing seriously wrong.
The numbers are fairly similar for President Biden: 35% say he committed a crime, 27% think he acted unethically but not illegally and 31% feel he did nothing wrong.
Fox’s polls are nonpartisan.
