Over half of American voters believe that the Biden family has accepted payments from foreign nationals in order to influence politics in Washington D.C., according to a new poll from the Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group.

President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is currently the subject of a House Oversight Committee investigation which is looking into his conduct and business transactions while overseas during his time on the board of the Ukrainian company Burisma. According to a new poll released Wednesday, 53.3% of respondents believed that the Biden family had accepted bribes from foreign officials, while 34% indicated that they believed in the family’s innocence.

“As a result of the ongoing Congressional investigation into Hunter Biden, do you believe the Biden family received payments from foreign nationals to influence policy in Washington, D.C.,” the poll asked

While a majority of voters expressed concerns about the Bidens’ behavior, the majority of Democratic voters said that they did not believe that the president and his family “received payments,” according to the poll. Only 11.2% of the party said that they did believe the White House family accepted payments and 23.5% indicated that they were not sure.

Republican voters overwhelmingly responded that they believed the Bidens accepted influence payments at 89.8%, with only 4.8% expressing their support for the president and his family, while the remaining 5.5% of GOP respondents were unsure, according to the poll. A large portion of Independent voters also indicated they believed that the Bidens had accepted payments in exchange for political favors, with 50% responding yes and 28.9% saying no.

House Republicans have been pressuring FBI Director Chris Wray to release a series of documents that an FBI whistleblower claims show the president’s involvement in a “pay to play” scheme during his time as vice president. The Oversight Committee also published a report on May 10 that revealed the Biden family had received $10 million from multiple Romanian and Chinese sources over the years.

“While Biden uses his weaponized DOJ to target Trump with an unprecedented prosecution, his family used the office of the Vice President and President to sell access to foreign leaders,” Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States, said in a press release. “The congressional investigation is not even complete and this poll shows the majority of the Americans have already seen enough documented proof to believe a disgraceful and illegal scam was/is being run by President Biden’s family. This is an affront to our country and the DOJ and FBI are continuing to subvert justice and cover for the Biden crime syndicate.”

The poll was conducted from June 5 through June 9 with 1,088 respondents and a response rate of 1.45%. The poll’s margin of error was listed at 2.9%, with a confidence rate of 95%.
