President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was about working together toward a better future, which seemed to resonate with many Americans.

According to a CBS News poll, 76 percent of those that were polled approved of the address. Although the final numbers were boosted by a larger amount of Republicans watching, 82 percent of Independents also approved.

While 56 percent think that the speech will unite the country, only 15 percent of Democrats believed it would have that effect. On the topic of immigration, a resounding 72 percent liked what they heard, possibly due to Trump’s unifying words during the address.

“Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us, gathered in this great chamber, hoping we will govern not as two parties, but as one nation,” said Trump. “The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or Democrat agenda, it is the agenda of the American people.”

Watch:

Trump also announced that he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un at a leadership summit, which gained a 78 percent approval rating.

“We continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula. Our hostages have come home, nuclear testing has stopped and there has not been a missile launch in more than 15 months. If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea,” Trump said. “Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one. Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.”
The CBS poll was based on 1,472 interviews with American viewers about their thoughts on the address, but it is uncertain if lawmakers will share the same opinions.

Nice deflection, Mr. Strawman! I didn’t say anything questioning the accuracy of the polls that make the 75% agreement claim.

Touche. Although you seem to be missing my point that Trump supporters seem to dismiss poll numbers unless they agree with the results.
