As far as income categories are concerned, 57% of voters making over $200,000 annually are at least somewhat in favor of Hunter Biden’s plea deal. However, less than 40% of voters with making below $100,000 annually are in agreement.
The US’s political system is corrupt to the core. It’s reaching Banana Republic levels of corruption that would make the Founding Fathers turn over in their graves. It’s going to take a national restoration/cleansing for the country to get back on its feet and assume its role as the city on the hill that the rest of the world should follow.
However, in its current dilapidated state, the US is turning into just another corrupt polity.
