Polls says Hunter Biden’s job at Burisma was ‘inappropriate’, but didn’t ask about his being a millionaire deadbeat dad
The Hill – A new poll found a majority of respondents classified former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s job at Burisma as “inappropriate.”
A Politico/Morning Consult poll found 52 percent of participants found the fact that Hunter Biden sat on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma “inappropriate,” compared to 18 percent of people who thought it was appropriate.
A total of 57 percent of registered voters in the survey said his position amounted to a scandal, while 19 percent said it did not.
Independents, an important group to watch during an election year, found Hunter Biden’s position inappropriate at 54 percent.
Fifty-seven percent of independents determined the event to be a scandal, with 28 percent designating it a “major” scandal and 27 percent saying it was a “minor scandal.”
But a plurality of all voters, 40 percent, said Hunter Biden’s position at the company won’t make a difference in whether they will vote for the former vice president to be the Democratic nominee in upcoming contests.
Thirty-one percent said they were less likely to choose Joe Biden, while 8 percent said they were more likely.
Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma was at the center of the impeachment trial that ended in Trump’s acquittal in the Senate … Read more.

Tom Cotton: Hunter Biden Is a ‘Deadbeat Dad’
Jan 22, 2020
Breitbart – Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) reacted to news Wednesday after a judge ruled that Hunter Biden be held in contempt after violating court orders to provide financial information in his Arkansas paternity case.
Cotton wrote in a tweet:
“Deadbeat Dad Hunter Biden faces contempt of court in Arkansas in child-support lawsuit for refusing to disclose financial information. I wonder why he’d risk contempt to conceal his income & taxes?”
Cotton also rhetorically questioned his followers on whether they had received the same news from any mainstream media outlets:
“Have you seen this story on @nytimes, @washingtonpost, @CNN, other MSM?”
Deadbeat Dad: The Myth and Reality of America’s Feckless Fathers
Sep 6, 2019
Fatherly.com – Of the roughly 36 million men who fathered the 74 million American children under the age of 18, about nine million do not live with all of their minor children most or all of the time.
Several million more see their kids at least once a week.
Five out of six single-parent households are headed by women and the percentage of kids living only with their mothers has tripled between 1960 and 2016 to 23 percent (the number of custodial fathers has also grown but to little more than two million).
All told, half of U.S. children will spend at least two years living in a one-parent home. Some will never or barely know their fathers. And fatherless children are much more likely to do poorly in school, act out, abuse drugs, and commit crimes.
Recognition of the crisis of father ‘absence’ dates back — like many poisonous elements of our national conversation around race– to Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s controversial 1965 book “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action.”
The prevailing assumption since that time has been that mothers are abandoned by good-for-nothing men “who impregnate women and selfishly flee,” as William Bennett, George W. Bush’s secretary of education, said.
These single moms elicit sympathy. These deadbeat dads are denounced. This has become a cultural tradition.
This is not totally without reason, but it’s also a highly simplistic view of families in crisis.
Of the nation’s 13-14 million single custodial parents in 2015, five out of six were mothers, and half have formal or informal child-support agreements, yet about 30 percent do not receive any agreed-upon payments.
While the median amount that custodial parents are supposed to receive was $4,200 per year in 2015, the median payments actually received was only $1,656.
Among the 5 million mothers awarded child support, 1.4 million fathers paid nothing. Although their absolute numbers are smaller, the proportion of custodial fathers who were supposed to receive support was actually higher — 365,000 out of 884,000 … Read more.
