SOTU Aftermath Proves Beyond Doubt, Americans Don’t Believe Trump Haters #SOTU #Democrats

The stats don’t lie.

Within minutes of President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union speech (SOTU), CBS News revealed their YouGov poll approval ratings on it.

Unsurprisingly, 97% of Republican speech watchers liked it.

More surprisingly, 72% of Independents liked it.

Staggeringly, 43% of Democrats liked it.

Overall, CBS reported that 75% of Americans approved of the speech.

SCROLL DOWN FOR FULL POLL RESULTS

For such a seriously divisive and polarising President, who is currently languishing with a supposed 39% personal approval ratings, these were sensationally good results.

Interestingly, 8/10 Americans in the poll felt the President was trying to unite the country with his SOTU speech and two thirds of Americans said it made them feel proud.

Less than a quarter that watched said it made them feel scared or angry.

Contrast this reaction with the instant and so tediously predictable blind rage spewed by the world’s liberal celebrities on social media before, during and after the address.

On and on it went, with these stars and many more assuming America agreed with them.

But it turned out the vast majority of Americans DIDN’T agree with their assessment of the SOTU, which suggests they’re no longer listening to what celebrities say about politics or Donald Trump.

For more evidence of this, look at Sunday night’s Grammys that turned into a marathon political rally of epically dreary proportions.

Ratings duly plunged 24% to an all-time low.

Why? Because Americans are sick and tired of entertainers preaching about politics at awards shows, particularly when they’re all preaching from the same liberal Trump-loathing handbook.

It’s hard not to agree with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders when she said yesterday: ‘I think if Americans cared what celebrities thought then Hillary would be president but they clearly don’t.’

She added: ‘Frankly, I feel sorry for these people. They’re so focused on hating this president that they’re missing all of the great things that are happening in this country.’

Now, she would say that wouldn’t she… and yet, she has a point.

None of these celebrity Trump-bashers ever give him credit for anything.

Yet there are things happening in and to America right now for which he absolutely deserves credit not derision.

Most notably, the US economy is full steam ahead, with consistently impressive quarterly growth, the stock market smashing weekly records, and job numbers at 17-year highs.

Most impartial observers credit the President’s war on regulation and his big tax reform plan as the major driving forces for the current economic positivity.

What they don’t seem to understand is that the American people are beginning to calm down about President Trump, understand him better, accept him for what he is – good and bad – and appreciate some of the good stuff he is doing.

Trump’s entire DNA is predicated on winning. Every sinew of his being for the past 50 years has pulsated with a burning, insatiable desire to win.

‘You’ve gotta win,’ Trump once told me. ‘That’s what it’s all about. You know, Muhammad Ali used to talk and talk, but he won. If you talk and talk but you lose, the act doesn’t play.’

Meanwhile, his opponents don’t seem to have a clue either how to stop him, or who in their ranks can beat him in 2020.

One thing’s for sure: it won’t be Hillary Clinton, who apparently still hasn’t got the message either that she lost or that hanging out with liberal celebrities is a vote-crusher to middle America.
