Melania Trump, current wife of GOP presidential candidate Donald, could become the least popular first lady since Hillary Clinton, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll.
39% of all adults surveyed said they viewed Barron’s mom unfavorably (compared to 33% favorably and 28% no opinion). Among registered voters surveyed, Melania boasts a congruous 37% un/favorable split.
As New York Magazine notes, “To find a spouse less positively viewed than Melania, you’d have to go back to January 1996 — and a presidential spouse named Hillary Clinton.”
The polling also found Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead increasing over her Republican opponent following both parties’ conventions. Among a random sampling of 1,002 voting-age adults, 50% preferred Clinton to Trump’s 42%, with a margin of error +/- 3.5%.
