A majority of U.S. residents give Michelle Obama high marks for her performance as first lady. 52% say that Mrs. Obama is doing either an excellent or good job in the position while just 9% believe she is handling herself poorly. 24% are unsure.



But, the first lady is not immune from party politics. 75% of Democrats report Mrs. Obama is performing well in the position. That’s compared with just 30% of Republicans. However, a notable proportion of the GOP — 36% — is unsure how to rate her.

Women give First Lady Michelle Obama higher marks than do men. 57% of women compared with 47% of men believe Mrs. Obama is doing an above average job.  There is little difference between younger and older Americans.  When it comes to U.S. residents under the age of 45, half report that Mrs. Obama is doing either an excellent or good job while 52% of those 45 or older feel the same.

    As a Japanese woman married to an American, the health of the U.S. is very important to me. The first lady strikes me as highly intelligent, kind and sincere. I think these are highly prized qualities for a first lady. As someone who is interested in living a healthy lifestyle and look first to home remedies and a healthy diet, I really like her making healthy living and a healthy diet an important issue.
