CNN/ORC Poll. Jan. 20, 2015. N=420 adults nationwide who watched the presidential speech. Margin of error 5. Per CNN: Survey respondents were first interviewed as part of a random national sample on January 16-19, 2015. In those interviews, respondents indicated they planned to watch tonight's speech and were willing to be re-interviewed after the speech. Some questions were asked of each respondent both in the pre-speech questionnaire on January 16-19 and on tonight's questionnaire. Where applicable, results for tonight's respondents from both the pre-speech survey and the post-speech survey are reported. 20% of the respondents who participated in tonight's survey identified themselves as Republicans, 39% identified themselves as Democrats, and 41% identified themselves as independents.
