8 in 10 Americans who watched Pres. Trump’s #SOTU address felt he was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it. Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer, CBS News poll finds https://t.co/SRoN9NzmKE pic.twitter.com/bvyG3myhgt

In addition, a lot of prominent conservative pundits praised the speech.
That speech was pretty good.

That was a Reaganesque speech

#sotu I would give my left arm to deliver this speech for DJT tonight. So well written … can I be a pinch hitter? POTUS can run the bases and get the glory. This speech deserves the Reagan delivery.

GREAT SPEECH. Beautifully delivered. I think he’s covered everything. Look for the exit signs, start proceeding directly to them.

Tonight’s State of the Union was Reagan quality—visionary, personal, with wide ranging reforms

It was a very good speech lefties. Get over it. It doesn’t mean that you approve of @realDonaldTrump to confess he gave a very good speech.

Was a great speech by @POTUS and extolled what makes America extraordinary, but it was LOOOOOONG so he just invited Chuck and Nancy to head to Denny’s for breakfast so they can make peace. Elizabeth Warren will attend and bring the peace pipe.

Trump delivered a masterful speech, filled with emotion, passion, and hopefulness. That is the truth. We will always cover the facts as they are.
He might go bonkers tomorrow, (probably will) but tonight, he delivered a great speech.
