After leaving the presidency in 2017, Joe Biden was asked about his actions when he took classified documents. Most people believe that it was wrong, and a majority of the people support the investigation by the Justice Department.
In a survey conducted by YouGov and the Economist, 76% of the respondents stated that they support the investigation being conducted by the Justice Department into Biden's actions when he took the classified documents.
This figure is higher than the 64% who support the investigation into Donald Trump's actions when he left office. Trump was accused of taking classified information.
On Wednesday, Trump said that he wanted to take some cool keepsakes with him when he met with Kim Jong Un. Some of the documents included letters from the North Korean leader.
Despite his statements about the incident, Biden has not fully revealed what he took. He has also said that he was surprised to learn that his house, his office, and his garage were kept classified documents during the Obama administration.
The public is still confused about how it views the situation. According to a survey conducted by the Economist and YouGov, a majority of the respondents think that presidents should not take classified materials with them when they leave office. However, they support rules that prevent unauthorized access to these documents.
Despite the efforts by Biden's supporters to make Trump look like a worse person, the public still views the former president as just as guilty of the same offense.
Almost half of the respondents said that the cases are similar. However, 28% said that Trump's actions were more serious than Biden's.
