First Lady Melania Trump’s approval rating continues to go up, a new poll shows.

Her popularity is up nearly 10% compared to the beginning of the year when President Trump first took office.

According to Breitbart:

“A Rasmussen poll released on Wednesday shows first lady Melania Trump’s approval ratings among likely voters has risen to 53 percent. That’s up from 45 percent of voters who felt favorably toward her just after her husband, Donald Trump, was elected president.

Rounding out the poll: 36 percent hold an unfavorable view and 11 percent are undecided on how they feel about first lady Melania Trump, according to a Newsmax report on the poll.

In Barack Obama’s final year as president, voters held a similar favorability rating of first lady Michelle Obama. However, 75 percent had a favorable opinion of Laura Bush at the end of her husband, George W. Bush’s, presidency, despite his poor approval ratings.

The poll also shows that 81 percent of Republicans view the first lady favorably, while 57 percent of Democrats have an unfavorable opinion about her, according to Newsmax.”
