Trump Trounces Obama’s Numbers: CBS/CNN Polls Show Massive Approval

The president’s State of the Union address was wildly popular according to liberal media polls, with massive numbers that totally eclipsed the former officer holder.

Hands down, the president nailed it last night and earned a 76 percent approval rating.

In his last state of the union address, former office holder Barack Obama could only dream about the sort of approval numbers President Trump racked up last night.

According to two liberal media polls, the president was overwhelmingly approved for his remarks, and in general, his performance in office over the past two years.

CBS News and CNN released instant polls taken immediately following the president’s speech. The CBS poll showed that 72 percent of viewers approved of Trump’s immigration proposals, while the CNN poll showed 76 percent approval. Moreover, 59 percent of people registered the address with a “very positive” take-away.

In 2016, Obama barely racked up 55 percent approval, according to an NBC News poll, but those numbers generally reflected only democrat viewers.

In addition, Pew Research tracked Obama’s influence on voters throughout seven years, and the numbers painted a horrible impression.

However, President Trump did not have that problem. In fact, the numbers were incredible considering the source of the poll, many people agree.

During the speech, the president spoke against socialism, and even garnered a standing ovation form white-clad democrat women.

He stated:

“Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country.  America was founded on liberty and independence –- not government coercion, domination, and control.  We are born free, and we will stay free.  Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

After which the GOP chanted “USA! USA!”

The president then touched on the recent push for infanticide in both New York and Virginia.

“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days.

“Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.

“These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.

“And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he basically stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”

“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.  And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth:  all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.”

Such plain speaking is rare for a politician, but as the left has learned by now, Trump is NOT a politician, he’s a man bent on making America great again, and he’s doing it.

Likewise, the president blasted democrats who previously supported and voted for wall funding, only to change their tune when it meant it would actually happen.

“In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall — but the proper wall never got built. I’ll get it built,” Trump said.

“This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way, way down.”

The wall is being built.

Of course, liberal outlets have spent time this morning indicating that President Trump’s address was chock full of misleading statements and even lies. However, their ‘claims’ could use a little fact checking too.

Peggy Noonan, a former speech writer for President Reagan and no fan of President Trump, praised his speech, writing, “This has been a deeply adept speech in terms of policy. He cut to the muscle on legal and illegal immigration, on abortion and infanticide, on foreign wars. His vow on socialism will be remembered. Great heroes in the balcony, a real American panoply. 1…And good natured with the white jackets, who I see some on twitter are calling the straight jackets. AOC had a rare bad night, looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss. 2.”

All in all, another win for a man who’s made a habit of winning, even when the entire globalist-liberal juggernaut is attacking him from every side.
