President Obama’s approval ratings may be less than stellar at the moment.

But that doesn’t seem to be affecting Michelle Obama’s popularity.

A Siena College survey released Monday questioned historians and scholars about who they believed was the best first lady.

Michelle Obama earned fifth place on the list, ahead of Hillary Clinton, who was in sixth place.

Eleanor Roosevelt topped the list, followed by Abigail Adams, Jacqueline Kennedy and Dolly Madison.

The first ladies were evaluated on 10 characteristics, including “courage,” “integrity,” “value to the country” and “accomplishments.”
