American voters have "positive impressions" of First Lady Melania Trump and First Daughter Ivanka Trump, according to a poll released Wednesday by Politico and Morning Consult.

The poll found that 47 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Melania and 47 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Ivanka. Only 32 percent and 30 percent of voters have an unfavorable opinion of the first lady and first daughter, respectively.

Melania's favorability had rebounded since the Republican National Convention, when it hovered around 42 percent, Politico reported. Ivanka's favorability numbers dropped by one percentage point since the convention.

The poll showed that over 50 percent of voters hope that Melania will take an "active role" in her husband's administration. About 45 percent of voters think Ivanka should play an active role in the administration.

"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, co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult.

Dropp added that since a portion of the public has not figured out what they think about Melania and Ivanka, this gives the first lady and first daughter an opportunity to "refine their public personas" during the opening months of the administration.
