Most voters are saying they approve of Joe Biden's handling of the transition and think President Donald Trump's resistance to concede the election and his administration's reluctance to help the former vice president prepare to enter the White House in January are hobbling the transition efforts, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.

The poll, conducted from Nov. 13-16 among 1,992 registered voters, shows:

  • 60% of voters said they approve of Biden's handling of the transition, while 28% disapprove. 
  • Biden's transition handling was backed by 91% of Democrats and 53% of independents, but it was opposed by 59% of GOP voters.
  • Overall, 41% of voters strongly approve of Biden's transition handling, compared with 21% who strongly disapprove.  
  • 62% of voters said they'd seen, read, or heard "a lot" about Trump's refusal to concede his loss — making it one of the most salient news events of an eventful year, according to Morning Consult polling.
  • 54% of voters said Trump is not doing enough to help Biden, including 77% of Democrats and 23% of Republicans.
  • A plurality of Republicans, at 37%, said Trump is "doing the right amount" to assist his successor, and 28% of GOP voters said they didn't know or had no opinion — 10 points higher than the share of all voters who said the same.
  • All voters said actions against the coronavirus — including controlling its spread, installing a plan for the distribution of any forthcoming vaccine, passing an aid package, and advancing an economic recovery — are a "top priority" for a potential Biden administration. 

The poll, which carried a plus or minus 2 percentage point margin of error, was released as Trump's campaign continues to push back in several states. 

Meanwhile, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll revealed that about half of all Republicans believe Trump "rightfully won" the U.S. election but that it was stolen from him by widespread voter fraud that favored Biden.
