(RightIsRight.co) – According to a new poll, more than two-thirds of Americans view the discovery of classified documents at President Joe Biden’s home and former office as a “serious” matter.
About twenty classified documents from when Biden was the US vice president have been found in his former office in Washington, DC – the Penn Biden Center, and at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The first stash – at the Penn Biden Center – was found six days before the November midterm election but was not revealed to the public until mid-January.
According to a public opinion poll by Quinnipiac University, 71% of Americans deem the discoveries of Biden’s classified paper stashes a “very serious” or “somewhat serious” issue.
At the same time, 60% of Americans also think that Biden handled the secret documents inappropriately, while 67% said they were following the news on that matter closely.
A Fox News report points out the White House has failed to explain why the initial discovery of classified papers at Biden’s former office wasn’t announced immediately – unlike when the FBI found classified materials at former President Donald Trump’s residence.
“Roughly two-thirds of Americans are aware of and troubled by the misplaced classified documents found in President Biden’s home and private office,” commented Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst.
“But is it a criminal case? No,” he added, alongside the polling data.
Fox News notes Biden’s reaction to the discovery of the classified documents but later told the network’s reporter Peter Doocy that he had known they were in his garage in Wilmington, Delaware.
“So the documents were in a locked garage?” Doocy asked.
“Yes, as well as my Corvette,” Biden responded.
Quinnipiac University’s latest survey found that Biden’s approval ratings declined compared with last month.
He had 40% approval and 50% disapproval in December 2022, compared with 36% approval and 53% disapproval in January 2023.
The new survey by Quinnipiac established that a two-thirds majority of Americans – or 68% – disapprove of his policies on the illegal immigration crisis at the Southern Border.
Nearly the same share of Americans – 61% – disapprove of the president’s economic policies.
According to the respondents, Biden also fares poorly in the foreign policy realm, as 54% disapprove of how he is handling America’s foreign affairs, and 47% disapprove of how he is reacting to Russia’s war against Ukraine.
The new Quinnipiac University poll was conducted among 1,659 US adults nationwide between January 11 and January 15. It has a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.
