In what has to be a major disappointment to the leftwing fake news outlets, viewers approved of President Trump’s speech by a yuge margin of 75-25 in the CBS poll. He didn’t do quite so well in the CNN poll, receiving a positive response from only 70% of viewers. Can you imagine the look on Maxine Waters’ face when she saw that? And these were polls conducted by the enemy.

While it is true that more Republicans watched than Democrats did, the fact remains that 43% of Democrats approved of the speech. When you think about it, that’s unusually high and does not bode well for the Democrats in November. It was the crossover voters that helped propel Trump to victory in 2016.

The sharply positive result for a president whose overall approval rating generally hovers in the high 30s and low 40s suggests that the speech was a striking success.

Many pundits who are normally critical of the president were singing his praises. Frank Luntz, for example, was deeply moved — and mocked the Democratic response delivered by Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA).

The CNN poll had good ratings for Trump also:

Probably the most surprising aspect of the night was the amount of applause President Trump received. He was applauded 115 times. Compared to Obama and Bush Jr, it was a record. Obama received 90 rounds of applause and George W Bush received 80. Only Bill Clinton did better generating 128 rounds of applause in 2000. Who would have guessed Republicans would go wild applauding President Trump after they all worked so hard to defeat him. This is the brand new and improved Republican party. Trump has shown them how to win and they decided they liked winning.

At the end of the day, the lamestream press will call the speech racist and will declare that Donald Trump is a total loser.
