The Results Are In! Here’s How Biden’s SOTU Address Compared to Trump and Obama
The yearly State of the Union address is something that I think many people watch regardless of whether or not they support the sitting president at that time.
I know I watched the speech from Joe Biden even though I, along with most Americans, do not support him. I was still curious to hear what he was going to say and how people responded to it.
In President Trump’s first State of the Union Address, 48% of Americans said that they felt very positive about it. Honestly, I’m a little surprised that it wasn’t higher than that because it was an amazing speech.
In President Obama’s first State of the Union Address, he had the same results with 48% of Americans feeling very positive about the speech. Again, given how much support Obama had, I’m surprised it wasn’t higher.
So where does Joe Biden land with his speech? You would think that he would be so much higher, wouldn’t you? Given that he received more votes than any other man in the history of our nation, you would expect that everyone supports him and would feel positive about what he said. He’s their ray of sunshine and hope. But if you thought that, then you’d be wrong.
The number of Americans who felt very positive about Biden’s speech was a dismal 41%.
However, if you look at the fake news polls like the CBS News/YouGov poll, they’ll try and tell you that the number was much higher at about 55%.
So where did I pull this 41% number from? Well, believe it or not, it actually comes from CNN. So you would think that they would try and boost that number up higher to make him look better.
The last time that a President had such a low number as Biden’s was back in 1998 under former President Bill Clinton.
