40% : Democrats like Dodd shielded Fannie and Freddie from regulatory scrutiny.
35% : Later, Dodd worked with Rep.

22% : Biden is struggling to dispel allegations by former Senate staffer Tara Reade that he assaulted her in a hallway in 1993.
11% : And that includes one rather serious allegation of sexual assault by Kennedy in which Dodd allegedly participated.
