CBS News found that:
76 percent of viewers approved of what they heard in Pres. Trump’s #SOTU speech; 72 percent said they approved of Pres. Trump’s ideas for immigration.

Even CNN found favorable views, which must have killed them:
CNN poll on Trump #SOTU: “59% very positive. 17% somewhat positive. 23% negative.”
