Americans are starting to like their first lady

The more Americans learn about first lady Melania Trump، the more they like her. CNN reported.
About 52% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Melania Trump، an increase from 36% pre-inauguration. In February 2016، the former model's favorable rating was a paltry 24%، her unfavorable was 31% and 23% had never even heard of her. Now، just 3% say they don't know who the first lady is، and her unfavorable rate has held steady at 32%.
Most of the recent uptick in favorable results are due to those undecided Americans، or those who had yet to form an opinion. Pre-inauguration، 23% had no opinion about the first lady، compared with 12% now.
The results fall along party lines; 86% of Republicans view the first lady favorably، while just 22% of Democrats feel the same. That margin is a lot wider for Melania Trump than it was for Michelle Obama، who in April 2009 had a favorable rating of 93% among Democrats and 50% among Republicans. When Hillary Clinton was first lady in 1994، 34% of Republicans viewed her favorably، compared with 85% of Democrats، numbers more comparable to Trump's.
