Well, if you just stick to the numbers, yes.

The new USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll pegs Mrs. Bush as by far the most popular figure in Washington, with an 80 percent approval rating. That’s about 20 points higher than her husband and higher even Condi Rice, who has taken a slight hit in approval since becoming secretary of state.

The poll also indicates that George Bush has some heavy lifting to do on Social Security. The public still seems to think a free-lunch is possible.
