A new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that a majority of respondents thing that Hunter Biden’s job with the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisima was inappropriate.
Via The Hill:
A Politico/Morning Consult poll found 52 percent of participants found the fact that Hunter Biden sat on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma “inappropriate,” compared to 18 percent of people who thought it was appropriate.
A total of 57 percent of registered voters in the survey said his position amounted to a scandal, while 19 percent said it did not.
Independents, an important group to watch during an election year, found Hunter Biden’s position inappropriate at 54 percent. Fifty-seven percent of independents determined the event to be a scandal, with 28 percent designating it a “major” scandal and 27 percent saying it was a “minor scandal.”
But a plurality of all voters, 40 percent, said Hunter Biden’s position at the company won’t make a difference in whether they will vote for the former vice president to be the Democratic nominee in upcoming contests.
Thirty-one percent said they were less likely to choose Joe Biden, while 8 percent said they were more likely.
This could partially explain why Joe Biden has tanked so badly in Iowa and New Hampshire and in the polls.
Voters do not like corruption in elected officials. Just imagine the media outcry if one of the Trump sons did something similar.

Turns out Hunter Biden was not the only family member that has benefited from Joe’s political career.
Hannah Bleau at Breitbart is reporting that Biden’s sister Valerie Biden Owens has made millions from Joe’s campaigns over the years, 2.5 million to be exact, via her consulting firm:
Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer’s investigative blockbuster Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite reveals.
Biden’s political tenure, as Schweizer’s book extensively details, has largely remained a complicated family affair, resulting in little-known financial benefits for not just his son Hunter Biden, but for his sister Valerie.
Her role as a senior partner in the political messaging firm Slade White & Company coincided with her participation in Biden’s various political campaigns. She was only one of two executives – the other being Joe Slade White – at the firm and has remained the Executive Vice President for 15 years.
However, the lines between her role as leading her brother’s political campaigns and working at the firm blurred, as the firm “received large fees from the Biden campaigns that Valerie was running,” Profiles in Corruption reveals:
The firm received large fees from the Biden campaigns that Valerie was running. Two and a half million dollars in consulting fees flowed to her firm from Citizens for Biden and Biden For President Inc. during the 2008 presidential bid alone. Keep in mind that Joe Slade White & Company worked for Biden campaigns over eighteen years.
As a thought experiment, just imagine how the mainstream media might react if this was a Trump family member.
Personally think the reaction from Democrats and the media would be a LOT different.
