Conservatives agree with Republicans’ Congressional plans to investigate President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s business dealings when they take control of the House in the next Congress.

A Rasmussen Reports sponsored poll showed 62 percent of likely U.S. voters support a House investigation into the foreign business dealings of Hunter Biden.

Of those that approve, 42 percent “strongly approve,” with 34 percent disapproving, of which 23 percent “strongly disapproval.”

The poll also found that 61 percent of participants believe the President has been compromised by Hunter Biden’s business ventures. Of that figure, 44 percent believe the President was consulted and profited from the deals.

Those that didn’t believe that was the case amounted to 34 percent.

The difference in approval and disapproval of the investigation into Hunter Biden’s ventures fell along party lines. Republicans were more likely to approve of a House investigation with 86 percent expressing their support for the initiative. Democrats were far less likely to support an investigation, with only 37 percent approving of an investigation. The majority of Independent voters also approved, with 63 percent of voters unaffiliated with either party disapproving.

The poll also showed that a majority of likely U.S. voters — 71 percent — had been following reporting on Hunter Biden and his abandoned laptop, which The New York Post broke in October 2020.

The story didn’t gain widespread media attention as the report was suppressed by social media, with Twitter even suspending The New York Post’s account after they broke the news.
