Most believe Biden was involved with son’s business dealings while vice president: poll
A new poll shows that most voters believe President Biden had a hand in his son’s business deals while he served as vice president.
The CNN survey, conducted by SSRS on Thursday, revealed that 61 per cent of voters believe Biden had some involvement in Hunter Biden’s business dealings. Of those, 42 per cent said he acted unlawfully, and 29 per cent who thought it was unethical, but not illegal.
A further 38 percent do not believe that President Biden was involved. More than half of respondents to the poll believe that President Biden behaved inappropriately in relation to an investigation into his son’s alleged gun crimes and tax crimes. His plea agreement with prosecutors collapsed in July.
This poll was conducted prior to the announcement by special counsel David Weiss that he would seek to indict Hunter Biden in the next few days in a court document updating the judge about his investigation into President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden’s failure to pay tax.
Biden denied having any involvement in the business dealings of his son as House Republicans move towards a possible impeachment investigation into President Obama over questions related to his family business dealings.
There are partisan differences in the opinions of whether or not President Biden had any involvement with his son’s business. Only 28 percent of Democrats believe that President Biden was involved in his son’s business, while 90 per cent of Republicans agree. 76 percent of Republicans say it is illegal.
The survey was conducted by SSRS between August 25 and 31 among 1,259 voters registered. It has a margin error of 3.5 percent points.
