Trump Speech Receives Rave Reviews; Media, Democrats Hardest Hit

As we speak the Democrats are focus-grouping in order to find something to nitpick that they’ll then obsess on for the next week before we get back to our regular diet of fake news and contrived hysteria.

President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress received largely positive reviews from viewers, with 57% who tuned in saying they had a very positive reaction to the speech, according to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers.

Nearly 7-in-10 who watched said the President’s proposed policies would move the country in the right direction and almost two-thirds said the president has the right priorities for the country. Overall, about 7-in-10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.
The survey, conducted among a group of Americans who said in interviews conducted before the speech that they planned to watch and agreed to be re-contacted, only reflects the views of those who watched the speech, not of all Americans.
People who choose to watch a political speech such as this one tend to be more supportive of the speaker. In this case, the pool of speech-watchers was about eight points more Republican than the population as a whole.
On specific issues, Trump scored the highest marks for his proposed policies on the economy, with 72% saying those went in the right direction. Almost as many, 70%, said the same about his terrorism proposals. Slightly fewer, but still a majority, felt his policies on taxes (64%), immigration (62%) or health care (61%) were heading in the right direction.
Ideologically, about two-thirds saw Trump’s speech as about right, while roughly on-quarter (26%) pegged it as too conservative. Just 8% said it wasn’t conservative enough.
Oh well, they’re going to have to get back to the Russians or something after this. Americans saw how disrespectful Democrats were, especially during the most poignant moment of the night:

That is some dreadful optics right there. Meanwhile, fake news reporterette Katy Tur did some mind-reading this to tell us what’s was in Trump’s mind as he paid tribute to Carryn Owens:

And Keith Olbermann’s former girlfriend wonders why she’s widely considered a joke.

To cap off the night, the Democrats rolled out a guy who’s not even in office and who called himself a Republican.

Brutal.

Here’s someone who used to have a Twitter account until last night, and he pretty much sums up the angry left:

    The Democrats often looked confused last night. They would look at each other like, “should we stand and clap?”

    You know they were told and mostly all agreed to show extreme disrespect, but so many things Trump said, you know they or their constituents agree with. They were caught on the horns of a dilemma.

    It was classic, as the camera would pan them and they looked confused. It was embarrassing for their party.
