    No. 'According to a 'Noun Phrase' " means if it is true that 'a Noun Phrase' says wheras 'due to' just means 'because of'.

    Hope it helps.

    No, they are different in meaning.
    According to him - in his opinion
    According to the latest reports...

    Due to - because of
    The aircraft couldn`t take off due to the fog.
    To be due - should come/must come/supposed to come or arrive/one`s obligation to do smth.
    He was due to appear in court last Friday but didn`t show up [ He should have come.../He had to appear in court..]

    with due respect - with the appropriate respect

    etc

    All the best,
