According to Politico:
President Donald Trump earned high marks for his first State of the Union address, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll of Americans who watched the speech earlier this week.
A combined 62 percent of speech-watchers called Trump’s performance “excellent” or “good,” with 17 percent saying Trump did only a fair job, and another 20 percent calling the speech “poor.”
The sample consists of Americans aged 18 or older who said they watched the speech, either live or after it happened.
One reason Trump’s numbers were so strong: The party-ID breakdown of the sample of speech-watchers was significantly more Republican than the overall electorate — 43 percent of poll respondents said they are Republicans, 29 percent are Democrats and 28 percent are independents.
That so many people thought it was a great speech, which it was, is bad news for the Democrats, who grumpily sat on their hands. During the biggest political show of the year, they presented themselves as angry partisans and will suffer for it politically.
