CNN/ORC Poll: 7 in 10 Speech-Watchers Say Trump Boosted Optimism & Policies Would Move Country in Right Direct and 57% Saying They Had a Very Positive Reaction to Trump’s Speech (VIDEO)
DON’T LOOK NOW DEMOCRATS, BUT PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP JUST HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, SO SAYS CNN …
RUT-ROH, Democrats and the liberal MSM find themselves in a pickle after President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress last night. It was a resounding success! According to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers stated that 57% of them said that they had a very positive reaction to President Trump’s speech and 7 in 10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country. Trump scored high marks on his economic proposed policies at 72%, 70% on terrorism and 64% with taxes. Don’t look now Democrats, but you have a major problem if you think you are going to just obstruct this president. That is not the will of the people. Of course CNN tried to down play Trump’s amazing CNN poll results, because that is what the bias MSM does, by stating that people who choose to watch a political speech such as this one tend to be more supportive of the speaker. Really, Trump supporters are watching CNN?
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.
Nearly 7-in-10 who watched said the President’s 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.
The survey, conducted among a group of Americans who said in interviews conducted before the speech that they planned to watch and agreed to be re-contacted, only reflects the views of those who watched the speech, not of all Americans.
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.
Ideologically, about two-thirds saw Trump’s speech as about right, while roughly on-quarter (26%) pegged it as too conservative. Just 8% said it wasn’t conservative enough.
Let’s correct something that CNN some what under reported above in their story. They stated that 57% of Trump speech watchers were very positive, which is correct, but what they forget to head line is that another 21% were some what positive. This means that an astounding 78% of those who watched this speech came away with a positive message from the president that the MSM, including CNN have continually bashed and acted like they were the opposition party in their bias reporting.
And making matters even worse for liberals, Democrats and the MSM, the Trump momentum increased as the speech went on as President Donald J. Trump won over many that had pause for alarm prior to his speech. Prior to the speech, 58% thought his policies would move in the right direction and by the speeches end, that was up to 69%. WOW. Democrats best be very careful. Americans want America to be great again, they want well paying jobs, they want real affordable healthcare that they can use, they want better education and they want illegal immigration to stop. If Democrats are seen as being nothing more than an obstruction at every turn to a president, even on issues that are Democrat one’s, they will pay an even deeper price in the 2018 elections and will be in the wilderness for a generation.
TRUMP ECONOMY, THUMBS UP!!!
From The Hill comes the following new Harvard-Harris poll that states that 61% of Americans say the economy is strong, while just 39% say it is not. It is rather obvious, except to the LEFT and the Never-Trumpers that the optimism comes from the fact that a business man is in the White House.
A strong majority of Americans say the U.S. economy is running strong, and most believe the upward trend will continue under President Trump, according to a Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively to The Hill.
The survey found that 61 percent view the economy as strong, against 39 percent who say it is weak.
A plurality, 42 percent, said they believe the economy is on the right track, versus 39 percent who said it is on the wrong track.
Trump and congressional Republicans have claimed credit for the turnaround, noting numerous polls in 2016 that showed that many Americans wanted change in the nation’s capital. Democrats counter that former President Obama handed a healthy economy to Trump and point out that the unemployment rate has dropped under 5 percent. At a press conference on Thursday, Trump said he inherited “a mess.”
As I have said from the outset, what are Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the MSM and the LEFT going to do and say when the economy and jobs explode under President Donald Trump and they are still whining about every little thing and looking to obstruct his policies? The 2018 elections are going to be a political bloodbath for the LEFT.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT AMERICANS LIKE TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS …
One would think listening to the liberal MSM and the LEFT that Americans have an issue with President Donald Trump’s executive orders, however, according to a recent Morning Consult/Politico poll, that could not be farther from the truth. As per the poll, 55% of Americans support Trump’s traval ban executive order while only 33% disapprove. See below, as many of his other executive orders are polling positive with the American people as well. So once again its the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT on the wrong side of “We the People”.
President Donald Trump’s executive order barring refugees and people from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US is one of his most popular so far, according to a new poll from Morning Consult and Politico.
The order has a 55% approval rating among voters polled, with 35% saying they “strongly approve.” Thirty-eight percent of voters said they disapprove.
Opinions about the order fall along party lines — 82% of Republicans support the ban, and 65% of Democrats oppose it.
The only executive order more popular than the travel ban is the one revoking federal funding for so-called immigration sanctuary cities. That order has a 55% approval rating, with 33% disapproving.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted from February 2-4.
UNINFORMED AMERICA, LET’S HOPE THESE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO VOTE EITHER …
As reported at The Hill, 35% of Americans have no clue that Obamacare and the not-so Affordable Care Act are one in the same. How is that possible. The Times article bias tried to portray that people are confused between the two names for the same law, yet some how when we look at the numbers … among Republicans, a higher percentage of 72% said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same. The liberal bias Times would have you believe that the high percentage is a reflection of the party’s longstanding hostility to the law. Sorry Times, maybe it’s because they pay attention more and are more informed.
More than one-third of Americans are unaware that ObamaCare and the Affordable Care Act are the same law.
The figure comes from a new poll by Morning Consult that found 35 percent of Americans do not know ObamaCare is another label — made popular by the GOP — used to describe the Affordable Care Act, enacted under former President Barack Obama in 2010.
About 17 percent of Americans polled thought they were two different laws, and 18 percent said the didn’t know whether they were the same policy or two different things.
The New York Times published the results from the survey on Tuesday. Morning Consult conducted the survey in late January with a sample of 1,890 adults.
The bias analysis of the polling data courtesy of the NY Times:
Sorry Libs, it’s not a matter of confusion, this is a matter of a voter electorate being willfully and woefully uninformed. When one side of the political spectrum is so uninformed regarding what was supposed to be Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, their is a problem and it has nothing to do with confusion. However, ask those same Obamacare-ACA challenged people who the Kardashian’s are and the number skyrockets.
This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.
In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.
Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.
This confusion may affect the public debate over health care policy. If many people think repealing Obamacare would not affect the popular provisions of the A.C.A., they might not understand the potential consequences of the proposals being considered in Washington.
SORRY POLLING FOLKS … A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TRUMPS POLLING!!!
When will the polling folks finally understand or come to grips with the facts that they have no idea what they are doing and more importantly, no one cares what their polls say? From the Politico comes the following Gallup poll that states that says that President Donald J. Trump is starting his presidency with the lowest initial rating in modern polling era. This following polls prior to the 2016 Presidential election that said Donald Trump had no chance of winning. Also, you know why Gallup no longer does horse race election polling? Because their polls were so wrong in the past. Of course we live in divided times, however, Trump looks at this as an opportunity. The poll praises the opening ratings of Barack Obama’s opening approval rating in January 2009 was 67%, hmm, how did Obama do as a president? Even with a BS ending approval rating of 59%, Americans, many of who were Democrats, could not wait to vote for Donald Trump and dismantle the disastrous Obama years.
You can come up with all the contrived, bias polls you want to drive the news cycle, Trump will be evaluated by the people on the job he does, not your selective models.
The first measurement of President Donald Trump’s job-approval rating shows Americans divided over his performance in his three days in the Oval Office.
Trump’s approval rating in the Gallup survey, conducted last Friday through Sunday, opens at 45 percent — the same percentage of Americans that said they disapprove of Trump’s first weekend on the job.
In fact, Trump is beginning his presidency with the lowest initial approval rating in the modern polling era, according to Gallup.
But while Trump’s first approval rating is improved from the poor reviews Americans gave to his presidential transition, it is also lower than previous presidents — a sign Trump has entered the White House without the same support from Americans that others have enjoyed. Barack Obama’s opening approval rating in January 2009 was 67 percent, George W. Bush’s was 57 percent in 2001, Bill Clinton’s was 58 percent in 1993, George H.W. Bush’s was 51 percent in 1989 and Ronald Reagan’s was also 51 percent in 1981.
Jimmy Carter’s first approval rating in 1977 was 66 percent, Richard Nixon’s was 59 percent in 1969, John Kennedy began his presidency in 1961 with a 72-percent approval rating and Dwight Eisenhower’s first approval rating in 1953 was 68 percent.
Trump’s initial approval rating is also lower than the scores for Gerald Ford (71 percent) and Lyndon Johnson (78 percent), who entered the Oval Office following – respectively – the resignation and assassination of their predecessors.
Trump’s initial approval rating also stands in contrast to Obama’s final score before his presidency ended last week: 59 percent of Americans surveyed from last Tuesday through Thursday said they approved of Obama’s job performance, though Obama’s average approval rating over his eight years averaged to just under 48 percent.
As I continue to ask, what the hell are the liberals, Democrats and MSM going to do when Donald Trump is successful and does make America great again?
