- 69 percent of US voters say they’re taking BidenGate seriously
- That goes for most independents and nearly half of Biden’s own Democrats
- Steve Bannon: ‘It’s the American people awakening to this.’

Seven in ten Americans say an alleged bribery and influence peddling scheme involving President Joe Biden, his son, Hunter, and other family members amounts to a scandal, new polling shows.
The Rasmussen Reports survey comes as House Republicans ratchet up their probe into allegations that the Bidens received millions of dollars in payments from foreign entities in China and Romania.
The nationwide poll of nearly 1,000 voters found that 69 percent said alleged foreign influence peddling by the Bidens was a serious scandal, with more than half calling it ‘very serious’.
Worse still for the president: it’s not just Republican voters who see impropriety here.
Nearly nine-in-ten Republican voters call out wrongdoing by the Bidens, but the same goes for some three quarters of independents and nearly half of supporters of the president’s own Democratic Party.
Steve Bannon, a top ally of former President Donald Trump, who is running to become Biden’s Republican challenger in the 2024 election, said the poll showed how voters were waking up to dodgy dealing.

The polling suggests that American voters are increasingly concerned by Republican allegations about the business dealings of Hunter Biden, pictured here, and other members of the power family

‘It’s the American people awakening to this, not really having heard much about it, because it’s been suppressed,’ Bannon said on his War Room show.
‘There’s been a blackout of this information.’
The survey was carried out nationwide on May 8-10, as Republicans on the House Oversight Committee gave an update on the Biden family’s ‘shady’ business deals.
The committee led by Chairman James Comer released a ‘Second Records Memorandum’ that expands on information it received from subpoena returns as the committee probes the Biden family’s business practices.
The memo outlines the Biden family’s ties to Romanian ‘influence peddling’ and a web of LLCs created while Biden was vice president.
It also accuses President Biden of a ‘lack of transparency’ regarding his family’s receipt of funds from China, which he has said are ‘not true.’
It details the efforts by the family to hide, conceal and confuse sources of money — including more China money, according to a committee aide.

The Republican investigators are under pressure to show results from their probe and demonstrate that the payments were part of an influence peddling scheme family members used to enrich themselves when Biden was vice president.
Rasmussen, a right-wing pollster, asked respondents ‘how serious of a scandal’ was engulfing the Bidens. Other polling outfits typically avoid leading questions that can guide a response.
Answering a second question, two thirds of voters said the scandal was about ‘the entire Biden family, including the president’. That included 87 percent of Republicans and 43 percent of Democrats.
‘These numbers are just going to go up,’ said Rasmussen’s top pollster, Mark Mitchell.
‘Bit by bit, more of what Joe Biden has done is going to leak out … and it’s going to get increasingly uncomfortable for the Biden administration.’

Well if it wasn’t for the propaganda arm of the Democratic party the mainstream press in this country protecting Joe Biden this would be an impeachable offense. Two factors here the press protects the President and the people are afraid of Camilla being president
