angularjs having issues accessing object returned by ajax call

I can successfully console.log the response from my ajax request, but I don't know how to access the object.  In the examples I have seen, they just access the properties.  I have even tried to parse it.

                var url = 'myservoce.svc/CancelSelections';
                $http({ method: 'POST', url: url })
                    .then(function(response) {
                    }, function (response) {
                        alert("Fail CancelSelections=" + response);

When I run this code, I get

Object {data: "<ExportShareOutputModel xmlns="…><success>true</success></ExportShareOutputModel>", status: 200, headers: function, config: Object}

<ExportShareOutputModel xmlns="" xmlns:i=""><ErrorMessage i:nil="true" xmlns=""/><IsValid xmlns="">true</IsValid><message/><success>true</success></ExportShareOutputModel>

Yes is a string, an XML string
Test page :

var response = {data: "<ExportShareOutputModel xmlns=\"\"><success>true</success></ExportShareOutputModel>", status: 200, headers: function(){}, config: {}};
var data =;
var ExportShareOutputModel = jQuery.parseXML(data);
var success = $("success",ExportShareOutputModel).text();
