At some point, even the dishonest mainstream media has got to admit the facts. Despite what all the liberal talking heads and overpaid columnists would have you believe, the real America has a much more favorable opinion of the President; they voted for him, after all! And when the data shows that three quarters of Americans polled had a positive reaction, not even CNN can spin that one.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the almost unbelievable event of the Clinton News Network reporting positively on Trump, and whether this might be a sign of things to come. Not everything is rosy however, as the shadow of the massive debt bubble we are in right now looms large, and it’s not clear if the President will be able to do much about it.
In a new poll from CNN/ORC, more than 75% of Americans reacted positively to Trump’s Tuesday night “Presidential” address to Congress. Among those who watched the speech, 57% said they had a “very positive” response, while another 21% described their reaction as “somewhat positive.”
President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress received largely positive reviews from viewers, with 57% who tuned in saying they had a very positive reaction to the speech, according to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers.
Nearly 7-in-10 who watched said the President’s proposed policies would move the country in the right direction and almost two-thirds said the president has the right priorities for the country. Overall, about 7-in-10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.
Ideologically, about two-thirds saw Trump’s speech as about right, while roughly on-quarter (26%) pegged it as too conservative. Just 8% said it wasn’t conservative enough.
On the issues, CNN says that Trump scored the highest ratings on the economy and terrorism.
On specific issues, Trump scored the highest marks for his proposed policies on the economy, with 72% saying those went in the right direction. Almost as many, 70%, said the same about his terrorism proposals. Slightly fewer, but still a majority, felt his policies on taxes (64%), immigration (62%) or health care (61%) were heading in the right direction.
And, of course, Sean Spicer quickly shared the poll from “fake news” CNN via Twitter.
But while the ratings were ‘yuge’ and ‘tremendous’, CNN also pointed out that they fell well below the 68% “very positive” reaction that President Obama received to his first joint session and 66% for former president George W. Bush.
While the 57% who said they had a very positive reaction to Trump’s speech outpaces the marks received by his predecessor for any of his recent State of the Union addresses, they fell below the reviews either Barack Obama or George W. Bush received for either of their initial addresses to Congress. In 2009, 68% had a very positive reaction to Obama, while 66% gave Bush very positive reviews in 2001. Likewise, the 69% of speech-watchers who thought Trump’s policies would move the nation in the right direction lagged behind the share who felt that way about Obama’s or Bush’s policies in the first year, and ranks around their low-marks on this score. Obama’s low-mark on that score was 68% last year and his high was 88% in 2009. Bush topped out at 91% in 2002 and hit a low mark of 67% in the final year of his presidency.
Meanwhile, in a shocking first for the king of Democrat “oversamples”, CNN said their poll included 509 Americans who watched Trump’s speech, including an 8-point sampling advantage for Republicans.
While most of America, even highly polarized democrats, was by and far satisfied – and in the case of Trump’s fervent fans, delighted – by Trump’s first address to Congress as confirmed by a CNN snap poll shortly after the speech, some were outright disappointed. Chief among them were Wall Street traders who had expected Trump to provide more details about his economic policies and some insight into how he plans on achieving his lofty goals.
One such critic was Mark Cudmore, a former FX trader who writes for Bloomberg, and who wrote a note overnight titled “Still No Details as Trump Makes America Wait Again.” Cudmore’s point is that while the market may be surging this morning on a sugar high combination of the Trump’s “presidential-sounding” address, the recent hawkish deluge by some prominent FOMC doves chief among them Bill Dudley, he believes this will not sustain as eventually the market will be forced to ask the tough questions: how does Trump get from point A to point B.
Here is his full note:
The longer the market has to process Trump’s speech, the less impressed it’ll be. It was rhetoric packed with hopes and dreams, but light on details and concrete plans.
Sadly, it feels like this outcome was all too predictable. Although, the possibility that he could have surprised us all means that the market has not yet fully priced in today’s disappointment.
Trump did manage to sound presidential and statesmanlike, and avoid getting bogged down in partisan or petty attacks. This is a positive.
It’s also supportive that infrastructure returned to the core of the agenda. Although, it seemed a resurrection of vague plans from three months ago rather than a step further along the path to implementing a program.
Financial bubbles, most notably the dotcom era, have proven that hopes and dreams can keep the market irrational longer than most of us can remain solvent.
At some point though, reality catches up. And 40 days in to Trump’s administration, there’s little sign that he’ll deliver much of a boost to the U.S. economy on any imminent horizon.
Optimistic soundbites from the speech don’t have the ability to drive the market higher on a sustainable basis. As analyst notes flow in to investors’ inboxes during the next 24 hours, asset prices may start reflecting a far more negative outcome.
Beware downside moves in the dollar, in U.S. yields, and even in equities. At some point, traders may realize the new emperor has no clothes.
While Cudmore may be proven correct ultimately, for now the first analyst note to flow in was that from Bank of America which not only did not reflect a potential negative outcome, but raised its year-end S&P price target from 2,300 to 2,450.
The following video contains an interview after President Trump’s speech where Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) sat down with Sean Hannity along with Reps. Jordan, Meadows and Brat to share reaction to President Donald Trump’s Joint Session Address. They noted the strong tone of the speech and discussed the proposal to repeal Obamacare, as well as, a plan for Congress to help President Trump lead… but their conversationo wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows…
