A new CNN/ORC poll out yesterday found that First Lady Melania Trump's favorability with Americans has shot up since her husband's inauguration. In the survey, 52 percent of Americans said they had a favorable view of Mrs. Trump, up from 36 percent when President Trump was inaugurated, and 32 percent had an unfavorable view. Melania is seen more favorably among men than women, which is a reversal from the usual state of things with first ladies, with 72 percent of men without degrees seeing her favorably, 62 percent of men with degrees, but just 46 percent of women with degrees. Mrs. Trump has largely remained out of the public eye since her husband became president, staying in New York with their son Barron. She's made occasional trips to the White House, and has spent some weekends with the president at their Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
