First Lady Melania Trump has had a good month.
Her favorability rating is up 16 percentage points since her husband was sworn in as President, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday. That means 52 percent of Americans surveyed have a favorable view of her, up from 36 percent before Inauguration Day.
That view is starkly split along party lines. 86 percent of Republicans view Melania favorably, compared to just 22 percent of Democrats.
The poll covered 1,025 Americans. The highlights:
- More men view Melania favorably than women, 58 percent to 46 percent.
- Michelle Obama was viewed favorably by 93 percent of Democrats and 50 percent of Republicans in April 2009, just over three months into her husband's first term.
- 46 percent of women with college degrees view Melania favorably, compared to 55 percent of those who don't.
- 72 percent of men without degrees approve of her, compared to 62 percent of men with degrees.
Part of the boost may come from more Americans learning who Melania is. In February 2016, almost a quarter of survey respondents didn't know who she was. Now that number is just three percent.
WATCH | She may seem unorthodox, but Melania Trump is more like past First Ladies than you might think.
