Hunter Biden funneled millions of dollars to President Joe Biden in a long-running scheme to profit off of his position, a strong plurality of voters told pollsters in a recent Yahoo News/YouGov survey.

The poll asked voters if Hunter Biden “funneled millions of dollars to his father in a long-running scheme to help Joe Biden profit off of his position.”
