Poll: 68% oppose Trump self-pardon

Ahead of his inauguration, Americans by more than a 40-point margin approve of the way Joe Biden has handled the presidential transition — but just half are confident he’ll make the right decisions for the country’s future, with muted expectations for his progress on key issues.

As to the man he’s replacing, 68% in this ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose President Donald Trump pardoning himself for any federal crimes he may be accused of committing. And 58% support Twitter’s ban on Trump, muzzling the outgoing president on his main platform…

In another measure, despite Trump’s unsupported allegations of widespread voter fraud, Americans see Biden as the legitimate winner of November’s presidential election by an almost 2-to-1 margin, 62%-32%. But there are wide partisan divides: Seven in 10 Republicans and 6 in 10 conservatives say Biden did not legitimately win. The opposite view is held by 62% of independents, 71% of moderates and 93% of both Democrats and liberals.
