WASHINGTON — Only 7% of Democrats are concerned about whether President Joe Biden was engaged in wrongdoing related to Hunter Biden’s businesses, according to a poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The poll showed 66% of Republicans were very or extremely concerned.

As for the fairness of the investigation, the poll found that only 19% of Americans said they believed the Justice Department handled the investigation properly. Thirty-percent said they were somewhat confident in the probe while 50% say they have little or no confident that the investigation was fair and nonpartisan, which is the belief among 79% of Republicans, the poll showed.

Surprisingly, 33% of Democrats say they stand by the job they Justice Department’s done; 36% say they’re somewhat confident and 29% have little or zero confidence the investigation was above board.

Meanwhile, an August poll showed that 85% percent of Democrats stand by the DOJ’s indictments of former President Donald Trump over allegations the he attempted to illegally overturn the 2020 presidential election. Only 16% of Republicans shared the same opinion.

According to the Associated Press, the poll was conducted before House Speaker Kevin McCarthy began an impeachment inquiry aimed at Joe Biden’s alleged connection to Hunter’s involvement in various Ukrainian business deals, from which Hunter’s company received millions.

Hunter Biden, 53, was indicted on federal firearms charges Thursday for allegedly lying on a 2018 application to purchase a gun and possessing a firearm while using narcotics.
