    I think what he really meant was that most people watching had the sound off.

    Even Rick Santorum panned it. Stay real 1J.
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    you guys made me curious re polling, so per thehill.com

    "Roughly three-quarters of respondents who watched President Trump’s State of the Union address approved of his speech, according to CNN and CBS News polls released late Tuesday.

    Seventy-six percent approved of the speech in the CBS poll, with 24 percent saying they disapproved. About 59 percent of respondents to the CNN poll had a very positive reaction to the speech, while 17 percent said they had a somewhat positive reaction. Roughly one-quarter — 23 percent — had a negative reaction in that survey.

    However, a significantly higher proportion of Tuesday’s viewers were Republicans, compared to the population at large, reflecting a trend that more State of the Union viewers tend to be members of the president’s party.....

    Approval of the speech was starkly divided along partisan lines. Almost all of Republicans who tuned in — 97 percent — approved of the president’s speech, according to CBS News, while only 30 percent of Democrats said the same. About 82 percent of independents in that survey who watched the speech liked what they heard."

    This is the key number folks - all of the partisan polling is bullshit. This certainly would indicate that Trump is pushing the right buttons for many folks.
    It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must stop it.

    Riiight. The number of actual independents is 6-7%. Most "independents" clearly favor one of the two major parties. But keep inflating your 'independent' egos.

    While I won't argue the number, that just indicates that the good ol' USA is populated by a bunch of morons.

    I would never dispute that point, but the people who watched are a totally skewed sample. The only one of my friends who watched is Republican. Why would anyone else watch him spew a bunch of bullshit? Trump actually said if not for him we'd be in a major war right now with North Korea. It's so laughably stupid.

    To this point - I don't recall the precise numbers so don't quote me, but when people are asked which party they favor there's a significant number of independents - 15-20% ish if I recall correctly.

    But if the question is worded in the reverse - is there a party that you couldn't see yourself voting for - the number of independents drops to something like 3-4%.

    I'll try to dig up that article (from about a year ago).
