He refers to them as “fake news,” but CNN has finally published a new poll with these facts: “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.”
According to the data, a clear majority (7 in 10) who watched President Trump speak on Tuesday night said that his 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.”
According to CNN, the survey was taken from a group of Americans who were interviewed prior to the president’s speech and then interviewed again after they actually watched it.
In their attempt to explain the positive results, it was noted in the article, “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.”

CNN also reported, “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.”
It was also noted that just one-quarter of those polled thought the president’s message was too conservative, while most everyone else felt that he was on-target. Less than ten percent said he wasn’t conservative enough.
