Michelle Obama has consistently high ratings

When it comes to polls, the most consistent aspect of the Obama administration is first lady Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Obama's favorable ratings have never fallen below 62%, and -- like most first ladies -- she has consistently been more popular than her presidential husband, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center.

The first lady enjoys popularity among different groups, with one notable exception: Conservative Republicans.

Reports Pew:

"Conservative Republicans see her unfavorably by a roughly two-to-one margin. But even there, she fares better than the president, whom conservative Republicans see unfavorably by 88% to 8%.

"She is also less of a lightning rod among them than Hillary Clinton was at the same point in her time at the White House."
