A poll recently released by Quinnipiac University might do some serious damage to the egos of both the First Lady and the First Daughter (is that a thing?).
Both women earned abysmal approval ratings in the poll. And while both scored better than the President in the “unfavorable” bracket, both Melania and Ivanka scored lower than their husband/father in the “favorable” rating.
President Trump’s disapproval rating stands at 56%, Melania’s is at 24%, and Ivanka’s is at 31%.
President Trump’s approval rating is 39%, while Melania’s is 34%, and Ivanka’s is 36%.
Millennials scored both lady’s the worst, with approval ratings for just 25% for Melania and 24% for Ivanka.
Taking things a it further, CNN explains that the majority of voters also have a problem with the fact that both Jared Kushner and Ivanka have such prominent roles within Trump’s administration:
Ivanka Trump recently assumed an official role in her father’s administration. She moved into a West Wing office and obtained a security clearance in late March.
About 53% of respondents said the first daughter playing a significant role in the White House is not appropriate, compared with 36% who said it was appropriate and 10% who did not have an opinion.
Kushner, her husband, also has a broad portfolio within the West Wing, where he has an influential purview over a range of foreign and domestic policy issues. He is heading up the Office of American Innovation, a new White House office aimed at reforming the federal government through private-sector solutions.
About 53% said his role was not appropriate, compared to 32% of respondents who said it was appropriate and 15% who did not know.
