The #Resistance movement within the Democrat Party took a massive blow after President Trump delivered an epic speech to a joint session of Congress.
Since his election, Democrats and liberal activists alike have promised to resist the president’s agenda at every turn, and thus far they’ve made good on their word. However, the movement took a severe blow once Trump was able to get in front of America and outline his vision for the future of our nation.
Snap polls taken immediately after the speech gave the president soaring numbers. In fact, even CNN’s instant polling revealed that its viewers widely approved of Trump’s agenda, which means that any attempts to resist it won’t bode too well for congressional Democrats.

More from Business Insider:
The survey, conducted by phone with people who planned to watch Trump’s remarks and again after the president finished his speech, found 57% of viewers had a “very positive” reaction. Nearly seven out of 10 viewers said Trump’s proposals would move the US in the right direction, CNN reported.
Here’s where Trump’s speech performed best among viewers polled by CNN:
Economy: 72% said Trump’s proposals were right for the US.
Terrorism: 70% of viewers agreed to the same question on the issue.
Taxes: 64% of people who watched had a positive reaction to Trump’s comments.
Immigration: 62% of viewers agreed with the president’s reform agenda.
Healthcare: 61% of viewers polled said Trump’s remarks on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act were on point.
With numbers like that coming from a network that does nothing but bash the new president, it’s safe to say that the country, as a whole, was impressed with what Trump had to say. Even further, the news should have quite the chilling effect on Democrats wanting to stand in the way of Making America Great Again, which is likely why we saw faces like the one below throughout his entire speech – they knew they were in trouble.
