Contributing sentiments towards policy:

36% : "While Hur also listed other reasons for not prosecuting Biden, the memory and age-related passages are sure to become campaign fodder for Trump and Republicans, who have already made the president's age a key part of the campaign.
31% : Hur was careful to note the distinction between the two cases in the report - namely that Biden cooperated with the investigation and returned the documents, while Trump did not give back his documents when asked and then tried to cover it up.
25% : Shortly after the report was released, GOP members of the House Judiciary committee called Hur's decision not to prosecute Biden a "double standard," an apparent reference to the fact that Trump was charged with crimes related to his own handling of classified information by special counsel Jack Smith.
25% : Republicans have long drawn parallels between Hur's investigation and that of Smith, who last year brought charges against Trump related to his handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after he left the White House, despite critical differences in the two cases.
24% : "The photos harken back to those included by special counsel Smith in his indictment last year of Trump over the former president's own mishandling of classified documents.
8% : The report is sure to become an issue in the 2024 campaign - where Biden's likely opponent, Donald Trump, is facing criminal charges for his handling of classified material, even though Hur made clear how different the two cases were.
