When likely voters were asked if this affected their view of Joe Biden, the results suggest a seven-point negative impact for the Democratic candidate in the election. Trump, on the other hand, saw a six-point bump in an equivalent question.

The results come with caveats. They are not an indication of voting intention, but instead provide insight into how the statements may influence voters’ opinions of the two winners.

Hunter Biden juror reveals where defense went wrong

A juror in Hunter Biden’s gun crimes trial excoriated the First Son’s lawyer in an interview with DailyMail.com, revealing the moments that most likely led to his historic guilty verdicts.

Juror 10 told DailyMail.com that top lawyer Abbe Lowell seemed “underprepared”, was “bungling things” and did not make a “convincing” case for Hunter’s innocence.

The man, who spoke anonymously, also revealed he believed Hunter’s exes Hallie Biden and Zoe Kestan – who said the president’s son “smoked crack every 20 minutes.”

Joe Biden changes his plans to hug Hunter at the last minute after his guilty plea

President Joe Biden immediately hugged his son Hunter as he stepped off Marine One late Tuesday afternoon in the hours after his son’s federal gun conviction.

After Hunter was found guilty on all three counts by a Delaware jury, the White House announced that the president’s schedule had been changed: he would travel to Wilmington.

When Biden landed at the Delaware Air National Guard, Hunter, his wife Melissa Cohen — who was by his side throughout the trial — and four-year-old baby Beau were waiting for him.

The president grabbed his son as reporters rushed over to capture the moment, hugging him emotionally and then pulling him back to him, his arm hovering above Hunter’s for about five seconds.

Biden also hugged Melissa and then walked over to his young grandson, crouched down to hug him and then kissed the toddler’s blond head.

Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green blasted the president for allowing people with “terrorist ties” and “major criminal connections” to “roam freely” across the country.

He argued that “bad actors exploiting our borders” have become the “reign” under Biden and warned that it is “only a matter of time” before terrorist attacks occur on US soil.

His criticism comes after six Russian nationals with possible ties to ISIS were arrested last week in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles in a coordinated sting by law enforcement.

Anonymous ICE officials told it New York Post that a wiretap showed that one of the suspects had discussed bombs, raising concerns that a horrific attack like 9/11 or the Boston Marathon bombing could happen again.
