This could be true, but the survey indicates that Main Street likes what Trump is bringing to the table. Cramer suspected this means good things for lending, building and buying of plants and equipment, too.
For years, Cramer heard that the market liked gridlock in Washington. How that mindset is being called into question. Yet, if the economy starts to ramp up, that means there are a different group of stocks to focus on.
Cramer saw another sign of strength when China's producer price index was much stronger than expected, and lifted stocks like Caterpillar, Cummins, Freeport-McMoRan and Rio Tinto.
"We need those to rally because they are part and parcel of the new bull market, the one that started after the election, as opposed to whatever we had before, which was limited to the household products companies and FANG," Cramer said.
Another piece of better-than-expected news was the sale of various divisions in Valeant. With $30 billion in debt, the $2 billion from the sales won't cause much of a dent, but Cramer says it's a start. Anything that helps to chip away at a huge negative makes investors feel better about committing capital.
"As much as we have rallied on the hopes of the Trump administration's super pro-business agenda, the fact is that not everything needs to be viewed through the prism of wars over the cabinet appointments or jabs in the media about the failed upcoming presidency of Donald J. Trump," Cramer said.
