A new CBS News/YouGov poll found overwhelming, bipartisan support for President Trump’s State of the Union speech last night.

Generally speaking, 76% of those polled approved of President Trump’s speech while 24% disapproved.

56% of those polled thought the president’s speech will unite the country, compared to 8% who thought it would divide the country. 36% of those polled on this point thought the speech would have no effect, one way or another, on unity.

Respondents were also polled on whether or not they agreed with President Trump’s stances on immigration. 72% of those polled said they agreed with Trump’s immigration stances, while 28% opposed his immigration policies. Moreover, on this issue, 71% agreed with Trump that there is a crisis at the southern border, while 29% said there wasn’t a crisis there.

The polling sample was 1472 adults at a 3 +/- margin-of-error. The make-up of respondents was broken down in the following manner:

  • Very liberal — 10%
  • Liberal — 12%
  • Moderate — 22%
  • Conservative — 27%
  • Very Conservative — 27%
  • Not Sure —2 %

Moreover, the respondents were asked about their political predispositions. Here’s how they responded:

  • Democrat — 24%
  • Republican—43%
  • Independent — 26%
  • Other— 4%
  • Not Sure — 3%

President Trump’s speech was widely received. Let’s hope he can deliver more speeches like this going forward.
