A CBS News scientific poll following President Trump’s State of the Union (SOTU) speech last night, found Americans overwhelmingly approved of it.
CBS News said the poll was “based on 1,178 interviews conducted on the internet of U.S. residents who watched the State of the Union Address. Panelists were previously interviewed on January 29-30, 2018 to indicate whether they planned to watch the address, and if they were willing to be re-interviewed after the address.”
The poll results (Daily Wire) (h/t FOTM reader Big Lug):
- 75% approve; 25% disapprove.
- Trump’s speech was approved by 97% of Republicans, 72% of Independents, 43% of Democrats.
