CBS Poll: 76% of Viewers Nationwide Approved of President Trump’s Address to to Congress Speech (VIDEO)
THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE AS THE JOINT OPPOSITION PARTIES TO TRUMP AND HIS MESSAGE ARE ALSO IN OPPOSITION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
First a CNN poll and now a CBS one, Americans nationwide who viewed President Donald Trump’s joint Address to Congress overwhelmingly approved of his speech. An amazing 76% of viewers stated they approved of his speech, while only 24% disapproved. While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” more importantly, about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”. No one expected Democrats to side with President Trump, as they have opposed all of his ideas, even the one’s they would normally agree with, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency. Democrats and the MSM find themselves on the wrong side of the American people as Trump called for unity and for Republicans and Democrats to work together to provide real healthcare reform for the American people.
Viewers nationwide strongly approved of President Trump’s speech Tuesday night, with many Democrats joining Republicans in calling it “presidential” and positive in tone. Republicans and Independents found it “unifying,” though Democrats were slower to come around on that measure.
The President gained support for his policy plans among viewers: Interviewed before and after the address, they came away from it more positive on his ideas for the economy, immigration, terrorism, crime and Obamacare.
As is often the case in addresses to Congress, those who watched were more likely to be from the president’s party – in this case, Republicans. And they described a president they felt was keeping campaign promises and offering an “inspiring” message.
While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”; neither label drew a majority, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency.
And viewers of all stripes described the speech as at least somewhat positive in tone.
Overall, most watchers approved of the speech. Republicans did tune in to watch it in much greater numbers than Democrats (as a president’s party typically does) which bolstered those approval numbers. Forty percent of Democrats at least somewhat approved; 18 percent strongly approved.
HILLARY CLINTON’S POLL LEAD IS COLLAPSING TOO …
With the first debate less than two weeks away, and in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” comment and her collapsing on Sunday, according to the most recent CBS poll, the race is a tie. This is a dead even race at this point. In a two-way race Clinton has a two point lead; however, this is not a two person race, there are four candidates and they are all getting support. It is obvious that Trump has the momentum on the campaign trail and in the polls as Hillary Clinton sees her poll numbers and herself collapsing.
With the first debate less than two weeks away, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a tight race for the presidency nationally. Clinton has just a 2-point edge in a two-way match-up among likely voters. The race is tied when third party candidates are included. Among the broader electorate of registered voters, Clinton leads Trump by five points.
One disadvantage for Clinton is diminished voter enthusiasm. Democrats are less enthusiastic about voting now than they were in August.
More than four in 10 voters think each presidential candidate should release more of their medical records. This poll was conducted before either candidate’s recent release of medical information.
With Election Day just under eight weeks away, the race for President nationwide is tight. In a two-way match-up, Clinton has a slim edge over Trump, 46 – 44 percent among likely voters who support or lean toward a candidate.
Polls Following Email Scandal is Weighing on Hillary Clinton, Now Tied With Donald Trump & In Trouble in Battle Ground States
MAYBE IT WAS A GOOD THING HILLARY WAS NOT INDICTED, SHE IS FEELING THE WRATH OF THE VOTERS …
In the aftermath of the non-Hillary Clinton email indictment, many polls find the race tightening between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The most recent New York Times/CBS News poll shows that it is a toe at 40% between Trump and Hillary. Mrs. Clinton’s 6 percentage point lead over Trump from last month’s CBS News poll has all but evaporated. Another major problem for Clinton, as she prepares to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the convention in Philadelphia this month, is she that 67% of voters say she is not honest and trustworthy. Can you say #Lying, Crooked Hillary.
Trump also has picked up some momentum in battleground state polls.
Hillary Clinton has emerged from the F.B.I. investigation into her email practices as secretary of state a wounded candidate with a large and growing majority of voters saying she cannot be trusted, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
As Mrs. Clinton prepares to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the convention in Philadelphia this month, she will confront an electorate in which 67 percent of voters say she is not honest and trustworthy. That number is up five percentage points from a CBS News poll conducted last month, before the F.B.I. released its findings.
Mrs. Clinton’s six-percentage-point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, in a CBS News poll last month has evaporated. The two candidates are now tied in a general election matchup, the new poll indicates, with each receiving the support of 40 percent of voters.
ITS ALL ABOUT THE TRENDING …
For the first time the Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows Donald Trump up 0.4 points over Hillary Clinton. The score is Trump 44.0, Clinton 43.6. This erases a 20 point lead that Hillary had back in July 2015. And more recently, an 11 point lead Hillary had over Trump in March 23, 2016. It is obvious that Trump is surging and trending up, while Hillary is falling. This has to bring panic to Team Hillary and the DNC as Trump is solidifying support behind him while the Democrats become more and more divided and violent as Bernie Sanders vows to fight on to the convention. So MSM, which party is having a civil war again?
The polls in play that show either Trump surging into the lead or making up a great deal of ground on the struggling Hillary Clinton are as follows.
As Don Surber opines, “Remember how Charles Krauthammer said if Trump won the nomination he could lose like Goldwater? National polls today confirm that once again, Krauthammer may have gotten Trump’s chances wrong again.”
According to the latest CBS poll, Texas senator Ted Cruz remains in the lead in Iowa with 40 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers as opposed to Donald Trump coming in second with 31 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is a distant third with 12%. If the polling continues to play out like this, an Iowa win will gain momentum for Cruz and although New Hampshire is probably not in play, South Carolina is.
What’s that sound? The establishment GOP’s collective stomach churning as conservative Ted Cruz could be the real deal for the GOP primary.
Ted Cruz maintains a strong lead over Donald Trump in Iowa, according to the results of a poll released Sunday.
The Texas senator, in the CBS poll, grabbed the support of 40 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers in Iowa. Trump is at 31 percent, followed by Marco Rubio at 12 percent and Ben Carson at 6 percent. Every other GOP candidate receives 2 percent or less in the poll.
The CBS poll follows last week’s Iowa Poll — which showed Cruz with a 10-point lead over Trump, 31 percent to 21 percent — and a Monmouth University poll that had him in first place with 24 percent among all Republican candidates.
Polls of Iowa and the country as a whole have painted two different pictures: Trump remains atop national polls.
