Question : Why wont this CFif work

Why does this cfif not work

<cfoutput>#matchstatus# = </cfoutput>
<cfif trim(#matchstatus#) is 'Unmatched'>

the first #matchstatus works fine, sometimes it says Matched and sometimes it says Unmatched depending on some other code. but not matter what it says, the result of the cfif is Matched. I have tried every change in syntax I can think of ', " is, eq, like everything, what am I missing.
Thanks in advanace
