Michelle Obama is such an egomaniac that she assumed that Melania Trump would never be able to be as good a First Lady as she was. That’s why it came as a nasty surprise to Michelle when it was revealed that Melania is already on her way to surpassing Michelle in terms of popularity.
Inquisitr reported that a Rasmussen Reports poll just revealed that Melania’s popularity matches Michelle’s number during her final year as First Lady. It took Michelle eight years to get to this number, and with Melania’s popularity on the rise in her first year, it seems clear that she will end up trouncing Michelle in popularity over the next few years.
The poll stated that 53 percent of those polled viewed Melania favorably, indicating a considerable rise in her popularity with an eight percent increase since the 2016 election. A year ago, 36 percent expressed a favorable opinion of the first lady, with 11 percent undecided.
When breaking down Melania’s popularity, 81 percent having a favorable view of the first lady were Republican participants. 57 percent of Democrats listed having an unfavorable view of her. Meanwhile, half of Independents polled expressed a favorable view of Melania while 44 percent felt the opposite.
Melania has been putting Michelle to shame from the moment she entered the White House. While Michelle spent millions of tax dollars on lavish vacations and a large staff, Melania has made saving American taxpayers’ money a top priority. She has kept her trips to a minimum and has hired a small staff to serve her needs.
“As with all things that she does, she is being very deliberate in her hiring, focusing on quality over quantity,” said Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s communication’s director. “It is important to her that the team is a good fit for what she wants to accomplish as first lady, and that everyone works well together. She also wants to be mindful and responsible when it comes to taxpayer money.”
Though Michelle claimed to have a staff of 16, officials in the Obama administration often said that the number was closer to 24. Michelle’s staff had more roles for press aides, a director of policy and projects, a personal aide and others to help with her office’s operations. In contrast, Melania only has a staff of nine, showing that she cares more about saving taxpayers’ money rather than feeding her own ego with a large staff.
