Too late! Pathetic CNN tries to belittle Trump’s poll results, but Conway and Spicer run with the numbers

President Donald Trump did so well in his first address to Congress that even CNN’s own poll could not hide the numbers.

According to a CNN/ORC poll of viewers, the president had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to his speech Tuesday addressing a joint session of Congress.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and counselor Kellyanne Conway were impressed enough with the poll results that they shared them in tweets of their own.

CNN needed to qualify the poll results with an explanation:

The survey, conducted among a group of Americans who said in interviews conducted before the speech that they planned to watch and agreed to be re-contacted, only reflects the views of those who watched the speech, not of all Americans.
People who choose to watch a political speech such as this one tend to be more supportive of the speaker. In this case, the pool of speech-watchers was about eight points more Republican than the population as a whole.


In other words, only informed people who watched the speech were reporting positively to it. And we can’t have that!

The president’s speech, interrupted by bursts of applause, received largely positive reviews from viewers with 7-in-10 saying the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.

For many, the highlight of the address was an emotional tribute to fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens as his tearful widow looked heavenward during a more than two-minute standing ovation.  Even those on the left could not deny the power of the moment, as CNN commentator Van Jones had to admit  “in that moment” Trump became the president of the United States.

House Dems wear white in protest of Trump to joint address, turns out to be a VERY bad decision

Speech watchers seemed to agree and the poll numbers, according to CNN, backed up the positive reactions.

Twitter users could’t  help but wonder how CNN, after its “fake news” war with the president, was going to handle the news.
