A recent survey indicates a concerning perception among voters regarding Joe Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s business ventures. According to a Harvard CAPS / Harris poll conducted last week, 60% of registered voters believe President Biden participated in these dealings. The split in responses is predictably significant along party lines, with a large majority of Republicans, a sizable number of independents, and even some Democrats suspecting the president’s involvement.
The survey’s findings emerge amid an ongoing impeachment inquiry by House Republicans, who allege that the Biden family may have leveraged public office for private gain. Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has emphasized the necessity for transparency and accountability, insisting that government positions must not be exploited for personal benefit.

At the core of the House investigation are new subpoenas issued by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee targeting Hunter Biden, James Biden and associate Rob Walker. Claims have surfaced about possible impediments by the Justice Department in the inquiry into the Bidens’ foreign earnings, which reportedly amount to at least $15 million.
In the court of public opinion, Hunter Biden’s favorability suffers significantly, with an unfavorable rating eclipsing that of his father. This sentiment is contrasted by the more positive reception of former President Donald Trump, who, according to the same poll, holds a higher favorability rating than any of the Bidens, indicating a potential influence on the 2024 presidential campaign landscape.

Allegations against the president are compounded by revelations from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and congressional testimonies. Reports suggest that then-Vice President Joe Biden had encounters with some of Hunter’s controversial business partners, including a notable meeting at Cafe Milano with figures such as the former first lady of Moscow, Yelena Baturina, and Kazakhstani businessman Kenes Rakishev.
Despite the president’s repeated and unequivocal denials of discussing business with his son, these meetings and subsequent financial transactions have cast a shadow over his claims.
The allegations against the Bidens indicate a deeper culture of corruption, validating President Trump’s critiques of the Washington political establishment. The focus now turns to the ongoing impeachment inquiry, which seeks to uncover the extent of the president’s alleged involvement and whether his actions constitute misconduct.
As the House Republicans delve deeper into the Biden family’s dealings, the political atmosphere remains charged with anticipation and skepticism. With the 2024 presidential campaign on the horizon, the outcome of this inquiry could have significant implications not only for President Biden’s legacy but also for the broader landscape of American politics.
