A recent study conducted by Pew Research Center found that as US President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office just days after a deadly riot inside the US Capitol, 64% of voters express a positive opinion of his conduct since he won the November election.
Majorities also approve of Biden's Cabinet selections and how he has explained his plans and policies for the future.
US President Donald Trump is leaving the White House with the lowest job approval of his presidency (29%) and increasingly negative ratings for his post-election conduct, the study also found.
The share of voters who rate Trump's conduct since the election as only fair or poor has risen from 68% in November to 76%, with virtually all of the increase coming in his "poor" ratings (62% now, 54% then).
Trump voters, in particular, have grown more critical of their candidate's post-election conduct. The share of his supporters who describe his conduct as poor has doubled over the past two months, from 10% to 20%.
The new survey by Pew Research Center, conducted 8-12 January, among 5,360 US adults, including 4,040 who say they voted in the presidential election, found that a sizable majority of Americans do not want Trump to remain a major political figure after he leaves office.
About two-thirds (68%) say Trump should not continue to be a major national political figure for many years to come; just 29% say he should remain a major figure in US politics.
