While announcing the results of his focus group that watched and judged President Trump’s State of the Union speech, Frank Luntz revealed that 2 undecided voters went to Trump after the speech was done.
Even though the coverage is overhyped, over-caffeinated. So if you are a left-leaning newspaper. Donald Trump this morning, everybody hated the speech. If you are a right-leaning newspaper it’s a brilliant speech.
Our group actually thought Donald Trump was not inappropriate. They did not think he was overly partisan. They thought it was a campaign speech for 2020 which obviously it was. But i’m afraid that the people that report the news are actually missing what the voters themselves are saying…
We had two undecided voters. They moved toward Trump after this speech was done.

Supporting Frank Luntz’s findings, per TCO, a new CBS poll reveals independent voters overwhelmingly approve of President Trump’s State of the Union speech.
97% of Republicans also approved and even 30% of Democrats.
CBS reports seventy-six percent of Americans who tuned in to President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night approved of the speech he gave. Just 24 percent disapproved.
As is often the case in State of the Union addresses, the people who watched tonight’s speech leaned more towards the president’s own party, at least compared to Americans overall. In the latest CBS national poll released last month, 25 percent of Americans identified themselves as Republicans.
Among those who watched Tuesday night’s address, that figure was 43 percent, and Republicans helped bolster the overall approval of the address.
