Trump’s first state of the union address was a hit with viewers. One poll said 75 percent of viewers approved. Now, he’s taking a well deserved victory lap and who can blame him? The media will never give him any credit for it.

Trump Celebrates New Poll Showing Soaring Approval Ratings After The State Of The Union
President Donald Trump touted a new report Saturday morning claiming his presidential approval rating soared after the State of the Union address Tuesday night.
The president’s approval rating reportedly rose to 49 percent after Tuesday’s address, according to the conservative-leaning Rasmussen report. An estimated 75 percent of viewers approved of the president’s speech, according to a CBS poll.
“Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election,” Trump tweeted Saturday. Friday’s 49 percent figure is up four points from the previous day’s 45 percent.
The president has traditionally relied on the Rasmussen reports, which tend to provide figures higher than some other polls, to gauge his performance.
Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election, and higher than certain “sacred cows.” Other Trump polls are way up also. So why does the media refuse to write this? Oh well, someday!
