Members of the destroy-Trump media were desperately attempting to spin the President’s first State of the Union address Tuesday night, but were forced to report on polls that show the vast majority of American’s highly approved of Trump’s primetime speech.
According to CBS News, a whopping 75% of Americans liked what they heard from their Commander-in-Chief, with 25% disapproving.
The figures broke down largely along party lines, with nine in ten GOP viewers saying the address made them “proud” and nearly half of Democrats saying it made them feel “angry.”
“Eight in 10 Americans who watched tonight felt that the president was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it. Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer. Fewer said the speech made them feel angry or scared,” admits CBS.
The positive feedback gives the President more political capital as the government sets its sights on tackling immigration reform, a hot-button issue last addressed in the 1970s.
Trump outlined his vision for overhauling the nation’s outdated immigration system Tuesday night, saying he was prepared to provide a “pathway to citizenship” for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for billions in border wall funding.
