Last night I was watching a couple movies(english subtitles still..), and a VOD of the presidential debate(no captions) on 4/4, and I'm pretty pleased with how much I can understand. If I had to put a number to how much I get it's like maybe 60-70%.
Having watched the whole thing myself, I'd say 60-70% comprehension is a really good starting position for you. I'm certain that with enough exposure, that'll go up really quickly. With regards to the debate, you may enjoy this: http://imgur.com/a/xlpoq If you have any questions about politics-themed resources, let me know anytime.
