A new poll aims to gauge voter attitudes about the controversy of Hunter Biden's job at a Ukraine energy company, and it is not good news for his father's presidential campaign.

The results from the Morning Consult/Politico poll were published on Thursday. More than half of voters, 52%, say that Hunter Biden's job at Burisma was "inappropriate," while only 18% thought it was appropriate.

His tenure at Burisma came at a time when Joe Biden served as vice president in former President Obama's administration, prompting critics to accuse him of influencing U.S. policy to benefit his son and his company.

In the poll, 57% of voters also said that it amounted to a scandal, and only 19% said it did not.

Also, 30% said that the scandal would make them less likely to vote for Biden.

Hunter Biden is also embroiled in a paternity suit by a former stripper who worked at a Washington, D.C., bar he frequented.

Once considered the front-runner in the Democratic presidential primary contest, Joe Biden's fortunes have fallen after his disastrous performance in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.

If he cannot recover with a strong showing in South Carolina, the focus in the primary contest will fall on socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).
