House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is chairing this week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, has better popularity ratings than this year's nominee Donald Trump — or 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new Gallup Poll.

Ryan was Romney's vice presidential running mate in 2012, but opted not to seek the presidency this time around.

According to Gallup, here's how respondents viewed the speaker:

All adults:
  • Favorable: 44 percent
  • Unfavorable 35 percent

Among Republicans:
  • Favorable: 71 percent
  • Unfavorable: 16 percent

Here are the numbers for Trump:

All adults:
  • Favorable: 33 percent
  • Unfavorable 63 percent
Among Republicans:
  • Favorable: 65 percent
  • Unfavorable: 32 percent
For Romney:

All adults:
  • Favorable: 35 percent
  • Unfavorable 51 percent

Among Republicans:
  • Favorable: 44 percent
  • Unfavorable: 46 percent
Ryan is also more popular than New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, both GOP presidential candidates this year and both speaking at the convention.

But Ryan is not as popular as former President George W. Bush. Bush's numbers:

All adults:
  • Favorable: 52 percent
  • Unfavorable 43 percent
Among Republicans:
  • Favorable: 75 percent
  • Unfavorable: 22 percent

Part of Ryan's low unfavorables could come from the fact that he also isn't as well known. His name recognition was lower than that of Bush, Trump and Cruz.

The poll was taken by phone July 13-17, 2016, with a random sample of 1,023 adults, aged 18 and older. The margin of error is plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.
