The survey, conducted among 509 respondents with a 4.5% margin of error, showed that 57% had a “very positive” reaction to the speech, while 21% had a “somewhat positive” reaction, adding up to 78% “positive” overall. Only 21% of those who watched the speech had a “negative” reaction.
In addition, 69% of viewers thought that the speech “would move the country in the right direction,” while only 26% said it would move the country “in the wrong direction.” Prior to the speech, 58% said they expected the speech to move the country in the right direction, meaning that the speech had a positive impact on viewers.
