Hunter Biden’s Republican obsession is backfiring
Republicans’ obsession with Hunter Biden’s laptop has returned to them as Americans want them to stop wasting their time investigating.
According to a new PPP survey commissioned by the Congressional Accountability Project:
63% of voters (and 63% of independents) say they would prefer Congress to focus on issues like rising costs and healthcare rather than probe the Biden administration.
● Similarly, 61% of voters (and 60% of independents) want Congress to focus on issues like rising costs and healthcare, as opposed to those who want Congress to spend time discussing President Biden’s family and the examine Hunter Biden’s laptop.
● An overwhelming 86% of voters agree that they want their elected leaders to stop playing partisan games and work together to solve their problems, with 74% totally agreeing.
The title Investigation of Hunter Biden, which resonates so well with Fox News, Newsmax and conservative media, is bombarding the rest of the country. The vast majority of Americans do not want Congress to waste their time and money investigating President Biden and his son’s laptop.
Efforts by Republicans in the House of Representatives to bring Hunter Biden’s story into the broader political discourse have failed. The American people don’t care. Polls have consistently shown that trying to find or create a Biden scandal is not a priority for the majority of Americans.
If House Republicans want to retain their majority, it would be wise to change course and end the phony Biden investigation. With no chance of Republicans spurring interest in government, Republicans are setting the stage for Democrats to retake the House of Representatives in 2024.
