A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll has revealed that a total of 52 percent of Democrats favor seeing a congressional investigation into President Joe Biden’s classified documents debacle currently unfolding on the public stage. It seems that the left is starting to turn on Biden, likely because they are attempting to pick a new individual to run in 2024, knowing that with all of the policy failures, potential connections to corruption, the gaffes, his likely dementia, and this latest scandal would destroy their chances of victory in the next presidential election.
According to Newsmax, only 27 percent of Democrats were against a probe. A total of 64 percent of American respondents stated that Congress should definitely look into the files, with a measly 16 percent saying otherwise.
Thirty-one percent of adults surveyed said the documents that were discovered at Biden’s University of Pennsylvania-affiliated office and private residence were less serious than sensitive files that were found at the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump.
Here’s more from the Newsmax report:
A plurality at 32% said the two events were equally disturbing, while 21% said Biden’s handling of the classified documents was more of an issue than Trump’s.
The poll results come after Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision last week to appoint federal prosecutor Robert K. Hur as special counsel in probing the Biden files. Meanwhile, Justice Department official John L. Smith is tasked with looking into Trump’s.
“We would never have known about the possession of the classified documents were it not for investigative reporting by CBS that somehow got a leak to determine that this had happened prior to the election,” House Judiciary Committee Chair James Comer said Sunday on CNN.
“So the administration hasn’t been transparent about what’s going on with President Biden’s possession of classified documents. And we just want equal treatment here with respect to how both former President Trump and current President Biden are being treated with the document issue,” Comer continued.

What we all want is for this two-tiered system of justice to come crashing down. America was founded on the idea that all of its citizens would be equal under the law. There would be no partiality. The same rules would apply to the powerful and to those who weren’t. Unfortunately, that’s now how our justice system works anymore, which is one of many reasons that folks have lost their faith in it.
Holding Biden, the man occupying the highest office in the land, accountable for his corruption would be a huge step in the right direction. It wouldn’t change the sentiment of the people overnight, but it would go a long, long way toward correcting our current course.
