CBS And CNN Polls Show Incredible Victory For Trump’s State Of The Union

Will Donald Trump Win the 2020 Election?

The State of the Union speech was a high mark in President Donald Trump’s favor on Tuesday.

A CBS poll conducted right after the event showed the president with a 76 percent approval rating for the speech.

It was a devastating blow for Democrats after the shutdown which they thought would doom him.


In the latest CBS national poll released last month, 25 percent of Americans identified themselves as Republicans. Among those who watched Tuesday night’s address, that figure was 43 percent, and Republicans helped bolster the overall approval of the address.

And while 97 percent of Republicans approved of the speech, far fewer Democrats who tuned in did (30 percent). Most independents did approve.

Fifty-six of Americans who watched tonight feel the president’s speech will do more to unite the country, rather than divide it, although 36 percent don’t think it will change things much.

Democrats who watched the speech see things differently, however. Just 15 percent of Democrats think the president’s speech will unite the country.


A CNN poll found the same but CNN found a way to attempt to make it negative.

Did you approve of President Trump’s speech?

About 6 in 10 speech-watchers had very positive reactions to the President’s speech, better than the 48% who reacted that well last year and around the same as the 57% very positive mark in 2017. Those positive marks cut across demographic lines — with majorities of men (60%) and women (58%), under age 50 (54%) and those 50 or older (61%), and those with (52%) and without (63%) college degrees rating it “very positive.”

But the audience had the largest partisan tilt measured in any CNN instant poll following a presidential address to Congress dating back to 2001 — viewers were roughly 17 points more likely than the general public to identify as Republicans, and were largely fans of the President. In pre-speech surveys, 61% of speech-watchers said they approved of the job he was doing as President, compared with 40% in CNN’s latest representative survey of all American adults.And the glowing reviews came largely from the Republicans (87% very positive) and independents (57% very positive) who tuned in. Democratic speech-watchers largely had negative responses (64% very or somewhat negative).

Even among this mostly pro-Trump audience, however, a majority said they did not think the President would succeed in increasing cooperation between Democrats and Republicans — 53% said Trump would not succeed in that effort, 39% that he would. Republican speech-watchers were most likely to think Trump could achieve bipartisan harmony (62% said so), while most independent (58%) and Democratic (91%) viewers said it wasn’t in the cards.
