As NRL News Today discussed earlier this week, pro-life President Donald Trump’s address Tuesday to a joint session of Congress was a huge hit. Even some of his inveterate haters in the press conceded as much.
How could they not? CBS News headlined its story, “Viewers strongly approve of Trump’s speech to Congress.” A whopping 76% approved, including 40% of Democrats who “at least somewhat approved; 18 percent strongly approved.”
Seven in ten of the huge audience [48 million] who watched also said “Trump boosted optimism,” according to CNN Polling Director, Jennifer Agiestar.
Gallup has weighed in as well. Frank Newport wrote
President Donald Trump’s address to Congress on Tuesday night had a positive effect on many of those who watched it or read news coverage about it later. Almost six in 10 of this group rated the address as excellent or good, and more than one in three said it made them more confident in Trump’s abilities to carry out his duties as president.
As you would expect, six in 10 Republicans said Mr. Trump’s speech made them more confident. But almost three in seven (36%) Democrats said Trump’s first speech to a joint session of Congress gave them more confidence in Trump to only 11% of Democrats who said it made them less confident.
