President Trump is considered to have two incredible assets in his wife Melania and his daughter Ivanka. A recent poll by Politico/Morning Consult Poll confirmed just how favorably the American people view these two members of the First Family. The results show that 47% of voters polled have a positive opinion of Melania Trump and just 32% that have an unfavorable view of the First Lady. Ivanka Trump has had a positive impression on 49% of voters while only 30% of voters view her in a negative light.
Both Melania and Ivanka had very active roles during the recent campaign, offering a powerful, personal endorsements that many say had an influence on President Trump’s victory. While Melania is currently going to be residing in New York to allow her son Barron to finish his school year where he currently attends, Ivanka is slated to have a prominent role in her father’s administration starting immediately.
From Politico: “Melania Trump’s favorability has rebounded since the Republican National Convention, up from 42 percent after her RNC speech, in which she appeared to crib lines from Michelle Obama’s Democratic convention speech in 2008. Ivanka Trump’s favorability is down a point from 50 percent after the GOP convention.
“While most have formed their opinion on Donald Trump, about 20 percent of voters still haven’t made up their mind about the First Lady and First Daughter,” said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult Chief Research Officer and Co-Founder. “That leaves open an opportunity for Ivanka and Melania to refine their public personas over the next few months as the new administration gets underway.”
Additionally, 51% of Americans polled hope that Melania will have a major role in President Trump’s White House and 45% want his daughter Ivanka to be actively involved in the administration.

Ivanka was already seen as a crucial advisor during the campaign and her husband Jared Kushner is said to have joined the administration as an unpaid advisor. President Trump has asked that Kushner begin the important job of brokering a peace deal between Israel and Palestine.
