According to the most recent Economist/YouGov poll, the majority of Americans support the indictment of Hunter Biden, and a sizeable percentage also back the House’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s impeachment. Concerns concerning President Biden’s financial gains during his tenure in office were also raised by the poll.
Only 9% of respondents, according to the survey, think that President Biden has not personally benefited financially from his position as leader. This result is part of a larger evaluation of the president’s favorability, which is still in the negative range.
The poll indicates that President Biden has a net favorability rating of -10, with 43% of respondents viewing him positively and 53% of respondents viewing him negatively.
In spite of this, these numbers put President Biden ahead of other well-known politicians like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has a net favorability rating of -11 (37% view favorably, 47% view unfavorably), and former President Donald Trump, whose net favorability rating is -14 (41% view favorably, 55% view unfavorably).
The poll’s inquiry into the financial advantages that politicians have received while in power is a noteworthy feature.
When asked, “Do you believe the following have financially profited from their positions in government while in service, to what extent, if at all? The emphasis focused on President Biden was for a different cause.
President Biden now ranks above both former Presidents Trump and George W. Bush in terms of perceived financial benefits during their presidencies, with 43% of Americans believing he has benefited “a great deal,” and another 21% suggesting “a fair amount.”
But with 45% of respondents saying that he gained “a great deal” financially while in office, former President Barack Obama took the lead in this category. It’s interesting to note that the poll also asked people if they thought that President Biden had personally benefited from his son Hunter Biden’s business operations, which have come under scrutiny for possible ties to the office of the president.
According to a large sample of 46% of respondents who chose “yes,” President Biden has benefited directly from his son’s business operations. These conclusions are consistent with previous congressional hearings, particularly Attorney General Merrick Garland’s testimony before a House committee, where he was subjected to difficult questioning regarding the investigations involving both President Biden and Hunter Biden.
