76 percent of voters want special counsel report on Biden released: Poll

More than three-fourths of voters say they want special counsel Robert Hur’s report on President Biden released, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll shared with The Hill.  

The poll found that 76 percent of respondents said Hur’s report on Biden should be released so voters could decide on the case and its conclusions themselves, compared to 24 percent who said it should be kept private.  

That 76 percent of voters who want to see the Hur report public include 91 percent of Republicans, 73 percent independent and “other” voters and 64 percent of Democrats. 

The poll also found 69 percent of respondents said Hur’s conclusions raised valid concerns about Biden’s age that should be debated publicly, compared to 31 percent who felt the opposite.  

The White House is weighing whether to release Hur’s report to the public, which delves into Biden’s handling of classified documents that were discovered in Delaware.  

The Hur report declined to bring charges against Biden but offered some still damning details against Biden, which said in part, “We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” 

Polling has indicated Biden’s age is a major concern for voters, even though Biden is 81 and former President Trump is 77.  

The Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll was conducted Wednesday and Thursday with 2,022 respondents. It is a collaboration of the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University and the Harris Poll. 

The survey is an online sample drawn from the Harris Panel and weighted to reflect known demographics. As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval.
