Americans Rated Speech Higher Than Trump

President Trump’s inaugural speech recorded a 49 percent “excellent” or “good” rating and a 39 percent “fair” or “poor” from a sample of 1,762 American voters who heard the speech. In the poll conducted by Politico/Morning Consult, 65 percent liked the “America First” message and 61 percent agreed with the government should “buy American and hire American.”

However, Trump’s approval rating among all American voters in the poll (1,922) was only 46 percent, nearly equal to a Gallup poll conducted the same time, which gave him a 45 percent approval (Gallup, Jan. 20-22, N1525, and Politico/Morning Consult, Jan. 20-22).
