Michael Medved: A Warm, Optimistic State of the Union Address

President Trump’s election year State of the Union address struck a different tone from his previous major speeches—an adjustment well-crafted to connect with shifts in the national mood.

The president did not mention impeachment—never came across as aggrieved or defensive—instead exulting in real accomplishments of his first three years while honoring admirable Americans that his team had assembled in the galleries.

This warmer, more optimistic approach reflected remarkable Gallup polls showing increased confidence in the nation’s direction: in rating the “overall quality of life” a remarkable 84 percent called themselves satisfied, while—by a margin of three-to-one—respondents felt satisfied at “the opportunity to get ahead by working hard.”

If the president continues to work hard himself to promote and reflect this sunny mood, he can help ensure his re-election and build the foundation for a successful second term.

Medved: An Opportunity for the GOP


A new Gallup Poll shows the Democrats’ diversity—not only in racial terms but in ideological outlook. The GOP remains overwhelmingly conservative—with 73 percent describing themselves that way and only 4 percent identifying as liberals.

Meanwhile, a full 14 percent of Democrats called themselves “conservatives” and another 36 percent said they’re “moderates.” While Democratic leaders drift to the left of their base, the GOP should target conservatives and moderates in Democratic ranks.

If you get a new voter to show up to vote Republican, that’s good—but it gives you just one extra ballot. If you convert a Democrat to your cause, you not only a bag new a vote for your side, but simultaneously take a ballot from the other side.

That’s the right formula for decisive Republican victory.

David Davenport: A Silver Lining In the Cloud of Controversy

Compromise

President Trump’s approval numbers are low and controversies are high, nevertheless some good things are happening in our democratic system.

Congress, for example, is stepping up to its responsibilities to debate and decide policy. With Trump less interested in policy particulars, Congress can become what the founders intended, the first of the branches of government. They are debating health care, tax reform and war powers instead of waiting for the president.

Federalism is also flourishing, with states and cities becoming more proactive in policy affairs. I don’t always agree with them, but California and other states have figured out that they can make decisions about immigration or the environment. Again, that’s how the republic is supposed to work.

There’s even a new appreciation for checks and balances and separations of power as the Constitution established them.

Call them unintended good consequences of Donald Trump’s presidency, perhaps, but these are healthy signs for our democratic system.
