A new poll by Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP showed 57% of respondents favor a Justice Department investigation on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden regarding their actions in Ukraine and China.

The poll showed Friday, Oct. 4, that Biden’s political prospects have taken a hit by the Ukraine and China issues triggered by the whistleblower’s complaint against President Donald Trump. Only 37% of respondents were against the investigation.

The former vice president was leading the U.S.’s diplomatic dealings with Kyiv while his son, Hunter Biden, served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company that paid him $50,000 per month. Biden had pressured the Ukrainian government to fire a chief prosecutor, who was investigating the company’s head Hunter Biden is also listed as director at China-backed equity firm.

The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, and the elder Biden said he’s never spoken to his son about his business. Nevertheless, media reports surfaced recently to contradict that account, including a claim from his own son and a picture of him, his son, and the head of the gas company Burisma Holdings. 

As calls for investigation on the Bidens continues to rise, President Trump on Sunday, Oct. 6, lamented about the “Fake News” working hard to “protect Sleepy Joe Biden and his thrown out of the Military son, Hunter, who was handed $100,000 a month (Plus, Plus) from a Ukrainian based company, even though he had no experience in energy.”

“And separately got 1.5 Billion Dollars from China despite no experience and for no apparent reason. There is NO WAY these can be legitimate transactions?” he added. “As lawyers & others have stated, as President, I have an OBLIGATION to look into possible, or probable, CORRUPTION!”

President Trump concluded by saying that he didn’t believe Biden would be the Democratic presidential nominee.

“And by the way, I would LOVE running against 1% Joe Biden – I just don’t think it’s going to happen. Sleepy Joe won’t get to the starting gate, & based on all of the money he & his family probably ‘extorted,’ Joe should hang it up. I wouldn’t want him dealing with China & U!” he said.
