A recent poll shows that Hunter Biden's legal troubles have little impact on voters' support for his father, President Joe Biden.

The conviction of Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, for making false statements about his drug use when purchasing a gun has not affected the president's voter support.

A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that most voters remain loyal despite the legal issues surrounding the president's son.

According to the poll completed on Tuesday, 80 percent of voters said Hunter Biden's conviction would not influence their vote in the November 4 presidential election.

This indicates that President Biden's supporters are largely undeterred by the personal scandals of his family members.

While most voters are unaffected, 16 percent of registered voters said the conviction makes them less likely to vote for Joe Biden.

In contrast, about four percent said the incident might make them more likely to vote for him.

The poll also suggests that the legal troubles of Biden's main challenger, former President Donald Trump, might have a bigger effect on voter behavior.

About 24 percent of respondents said Trump’s conviction in the hush money trial makes them less likely to vote for him, while 14 percent said it makes them more likely to support him.
