After Donald Trump’s inauguration speech, liberals in media immediately tried to paint it as a dark, depressing vision for America. The American people however, felt very differently about it.
Poll: Voters liked Trump’s ‘America first’ address
Dark. Negative. Divisive. That’s was the immediate narrative about President Donald Trump’s inaugural address.
But many Americans liked it.
A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that the new president’s message is resonating with voters, refuting the idea that Trump bungled his first speech as commander in chief.
Trump got relatively high marks on his Friday address, with 49 percent of those who watched or heard about the speech saying it was excellent or good, and just 39 percent rating it as only fair or poor. Sixty-five percent of those surveyed reacted positively to the “America First” message, the cornerstone of the Trump campaign and governing posture.
The media just doesn’t get it. Here’s another important tidbit from the report:
Americans are looking for Trump to put his slogan into action: 61 percent said they agreed with Trump’s plan that the federal government should “buy American and hire American.”
When will the press stop fighting the will of the American people?
They loved Obama even though he made things worse. Now Trump is trying to fix things and they’re fighting him. Whose side are they on?
