The United States First Lady Melania Trump is reportedly the most popular member of the Donald Trump family, according to a new poll. The survey also stated that the First Daughter — Ivanka Trump's — husband Jared Kushner is the least popular member of the First Family.

The poll, recently conducted by Economist/YouGov, found out that President Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump received a 48 percent approval rating, and ranks more popular than the US president.

The survey put Donald Trump's rating at 43 percent, which has remained constant since last year. The poll stated that Trump is the second most popular member of his family after his wife.

To the surprise of many, Melania ranked even higher than Ivanka Trump — who is reportedly seen as the actual 'First Lady' inside the White House circle. Reports state that in the early days of the Trump presidency, both the women — Melania and Ivanka — were equally popular, each with an approval rating of 44 percent.  



 

The poll stated that Donald Trump's sons — Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump — were below Melania and Ivanka at 36 and 32 percent.

However, the most surprising result of the poll was Jared Kushner's popularity, Kushner, who is a senior advisor to the president — received an approval rating of just 25 percent. Kushner has been in news for his alleged involvement in the Russian interference probe. The US intelligence agencies have said that Russia attempted to influence a Trump win during the 2016 presidential elections and attempted to make contact with the Trump campaign.

Reports state that Kushner's approval ratings remain unchanged from last year.

A different poll — conducted by CNN — also revealed the same results, ranking Melania as the most popular member of the Trump family. The CNN poll showed that Melania was more popular than Donald Trump, with an approval rating of 47 percent, while the Republican billionaire received an approval rating of 40 percent. The CNN poll was reportedly conducted by SSRS.

The poll added that Melania's top supporters were Republicans, and 23 percent of the Democrats also gave the First Lady positive views, reports state.

Melania's biggest fans were Americans above the age of 50, the survey stated, adding that the younger Americans were not as pleased with her as the older generation.

The current first lady is slightly less popular than her predecessor Michelle Obama was one year into former President Barack Obama's presidency.
