The State of the Union stats don’t lie: Americans are turning against Trump-hating celebrities and buying into the President’s American dream – THAT’S a nightmare for Democrats

It’s fun when a man who’s been constantly disparaged for his lack of political experience gives the most political speech in the world—the US State of the Union address—and knocks it out of the park. From Piers Morgan at dailymail.co.uk:

The stats don’t lie.

Within minutes of President Donald Trump‘s first State of the Union speech, 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.

For such a seriously divisive and polarising President, who is currently languishing with just 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 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.

From my own unofficial poll – i.e. my own eyes on Twitter – I’d say 99% of them were so furious at the speech they could barely think straight.

‘I was told darkness could not exist in the light,’ tweeted Sarah Silverman. ‘But here it is, for everyone to not see.’

Jim Carrey tweeted an illustration of sharks across a map of America, then another of a weeping Abraham Lincoln and the caption: ‘It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to.’
