    Poll: High Marks for Obama's State of the Union Speech





    [​IMG]




    An overwhelming majority of Americans approved of the overall message in President Obama's State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, according to a CBS News poll of speech watchers.


    According to the poll, which was conducted online by Knowledge Networks immediately after the president's address, 91 percent of those who watched the speech approved of the proposals Mr. Obama put forth during his remarks. Only nine percent disapproved.


    Last year, 83 percent of viewers approved of Mr. Obama's State of the Union remarks.

    I would guess thats because the vast majority of Republicans and conservatives didn't bother listening to the same old bullshit we've heard over and over from him.

    Do you know what my favorite part of the SOTU speech was? It's when President Obama said that he and many members of congress should pay as high a tax rate as most Americans do, and Republicans sat in their chairs, unmoved at the prospect.

    Kids having another tantrum, eh? I guess we shouldn't bother listening to their concerns, either. BTW, if no one was listening, how do you know it was the same old BS? :doubt:

    Great speech, unifying and hopeful, except for no compromise, "un-American" (TIME) Pubs and brainwashed hater dittoheads, who are recovering or disappearing. But he showed someone has a plan and intelligence...no drama Obama.

    The overwhelming majority of America didn't even bother listening to him.

    A reader adds:


    Today at work the response has been surprisingly positive. I live in Central PA, otherwise known as Pennsyltucky. What’s surprising is the reaction from those who have been steadfastly opposed to Obama and everything he stands for. Both an evangelical Christian, who is primarily concerned with the social agenda, and a secular conservative, who is primarily concerned about his guns and his taxes being given to the lazy, enjoyed the speech and even said, “I could possibly see myself voting for him”.

    Why wouldn't they already be paying the same tax rate as "most Americans" do?

    I would guess they make more than the average American, so they would be paying at higher tax rate as well.
