President Donald Trump delivered his State of The Union (SOTU) address on Tuesday night. He highlighted issues of immigration, abortion, education and employment.

According to CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor, “Seventy-six percent of the speech-watchers said they approved of what they heard.”

Surprisingly, this included 72 percent of independents. However, many Democrats still were not pleased with Trump’s words. Democrats only gave Trump a 43 percent approval rating, and many female Democratic members of Congress wore white as a reference to the Suffragette movement. When those Congresswomen did not rise to applaud some of the President’s policies, their clothing was perceived as a stand against Trump on those issues.

Regardless, these percentages are up from a CBS poll last month, which reported 33 percent of independents and seven percent of Democrats approving of the President.

Overall, Trump’s SOTU address united the country for a brief time. The CBS poll also said, “Sixty-five percent of those surveyed said Trump’s speech made them proud.”

A sense of bipartisanship was imminent, but a lot of work is to be done. Many citizens believe Americans on both sides of the aisle need to work together to solve important issues facing our country today.
