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.’

Andy Lassner, producer of the insufferably smug The Ellen Show sneered: ‘Good luck ‘Saturday Night Live’ on trying to make this any more f***ing ridiculous than it already is.’
Jeffrey Wright raged: ‘Can’t even watch this vile, deceitful fraud and his bizarre cult of self-interested sycophants.’
Patton Oswalt seethed: ‘I’m gonna fact check this speech: whatever he just said was bullsh*t.’
Jessica Chastain urged people not to watch the speech at all.
Billy Eichner fumed: ‘The President is a lying, incompetent, racist, misogynist sack of sh*t.’
And George Takei spouted: ‘I’m not watching some frothing orange gorilla read off a teleprompter.’
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 them, which suggests they’re no longer listening to what celebrities say about politics or Donald Trump.
