Seventy-five percent of Americans who watched Trump's SOTU approved of the speech, while 25 percent disapproved, according to a CBS News poll.

Further, a CNN poll found that 70 percent of those who watched the SOTU had a "very positive" or "somewhat positive" attitude about the president's speech. 

Here are the highlights from the CBS survey:
