According to a poll by CBS News/YouGov, a whopping 43 percent of Democrats approved of President Trump's State of the Union address. However, despite the fact that the poll was sponsored by CBS, its startling pro-Trump results are getting little to no acknowledgement by the network.
The day after the January 30th poll was taken, both CBS This Morning and CBS Evening News preferred a "mum's the word" approach to the surprisingly favorable Democratic reception of Trump's moving speech. In fact, only the streaming service CBSN has, so far, referenced the poll. Anne-Marie Green reported:
"So we’re following the latest reaction to President Trump’s State of the Union speech. In a CBS News poll most Republicans watching the speech overwhelmingly approved of the President’s message. While 43 percent of Democrats and 72 percent of independents said that they approved of the speech."
Green's report also included a graphic representation of audience reaction to the 95th SOTU, revealing that 97 percent of Republicans and 72 percent of independents approved of the President's first State of the Union.
In addition to the 43-percent figure not making the network's broadcasts on the 31st, incredibly, it was completely skipped over by a January 30th CBSNews.com article on the results of the poll.
Due to CBS's apparent repulsion by the results, the poll was only given 17 seconds during Wednesday's edition of CBS This Morning, with John Dickerson barely mentioning:
"A CBS news poll shows three out of four Americans who saw the speech approve of the president’s message. Eight in ten Americans who watched say they believe Mr. Trump was trying to unite the country rather than divide it. The audience, according to our poll, was 42 percent Republican, and 25 percent Democrat."
The success of Donald Trump is truly inspiring. Despite the mainstream media's complete abandonment of journalism in favor of shameful partisan narrative, the real estate mogul defied the odds and ascended to the highest office in the land. And on Tuesday night -- among the mainstream media's own party -- the country's rise under Trump's leadership was applauded to the tune of 43 percent.
