Most Americans agree with Hunter Biden conviction in gun case: Poll

For months, liberals in the mainstream media have been working hard to portray Hunter Biden as a well-meaning, hard-working individual who had the misfortune of getting caught up in the throes of addiction.

However, despite those attempts to spin the first son's misdeeds, new polling reveals a reversal of fortune for his journalistic champions, in that a majority of Americans believe that Hunter Biden's recent conviction on all three felony charges in his federal gun case was the correct outcome, as Just the News reports.

First son convicted

It was earlier this month that a jury in Delaware found Hunter Biden guilty on three felony charges connected to his purchase of a gun back in 2018, as the Associated Press reported.

Federal prosecutors successfully argued that Mr. Biden lied on a legally required purchase form when he declared that he was not using or addicted to drugs.

Before -- and after -- the proceedings, left-leaning journalists everywhere did their best to paint a picture of an honorable son who has overcome his personal struggles, and his own father -- the president of the United States -- continued to refer to his offspring as one of the best and smartest men he has ever known.

Notably, however, a large segment of the American populace has deemed Hunter's prosecution and his eventual conviction to be representative of a just process and appropriate outcome.

Poll signifies Americans' approval

As revealed by a YouGov/Economist poll on the subject, over two-thirds of those asked about the Hunter Biden case signaled their approval of the jury's verdict.

Fully 67% of respondents said that the jury rendered the correct decision at the trial's end.

Taking a deeper dive into the survey, 62% of participants who support the current president revealed a “favorable” or “somewhat favorable” view of the outcome.

Just 20% of individuals in that cohort indicated their disapproval of the final decision in the case.

Trump conviction proves more divisive

Interestingly, consensus was far more elusive when it comes to the New York hush money conviction of former President Donald Trump, with just 51% of Biden supporters noting approval of the outcome, with 36% indicating disapproval.

As former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently noted, “The trials in New York, New Yorkers said – 66% said the justice system is politicized. And there's nobody in New York who likes Trump. And still, 66% said the justice system is politicized,” making the point that most Americans tend to know a valid prosecution when they see one, and when it came to Hunter Biden, they were not swayed by the media's entreaties to the contrary.
