Rasmussen:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters are likely to watch or follow news reports about tonight’s State of the Union Speech. That’s virtually identical to last year’s findings but down from the 79% who followed the speech in January 2011. Twenty-six percent (26%) are unlikely to watch or follow reports about the speech. This includes 45% who are Very Likely to watch or follow the speech and 10% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Just 28% of voters think State of the Union speeches are important for setting the nation’s agenda for the next year. Sixty-two percent (62%) view them instead as mostly just for show, up nine points from 53% a year ago when the president delivered the first State of the Union speech following his reelection.

What a bunch of cynics. It’s not just for show. It’s also an excellent excuse to drink, and heavily.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to begin carboloading for tonight’s show.

I'll only be following it via Mr. Green in order to generate a few belly laughs. The pressure is on Mr. Green! (I hope the pressure doesn't drive you to drink.....but maybe that makes for a good excuse).

It was a boring socialist commercial, and everything is the republican's fault. Obama is our messiah.

You have now learned everything you need to know about Big O's speech tonight from this blog.

Steve's commentary will be more along the lines of a highly educated Mystery Science Theater 3000 show. You know, where they find the stupidest shows they can and mock them? Yeah.
