Voters, Especially Republicans, Tuning in to Trump’s State of the Union

Despite the post-government shutdown delay, President Trump can still expect a big audience for his State of the Union speech tomorrow night.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are likely to watch or follow news reports about Trump’s State of the Union speech, with 48% who are Very Likely to do so. Twenty-seven percent (27%) are unlikely to follow the speech, with 14% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
