Send Us Your State of the Union Questions

President Barack Obama will communicate directly with the American people when he delivers his State of the Union address Wednesday night.

The people's discontent and falling job approval numbers will no doubt provide the backdrop for everything Obama says and proposes. According to the Associated Press, Obama will focus largely on plans to improve the economy -- including new education spending -- and will also introduce ideas to salvage the healthcare reform effort.

The question after the fact is: how will Americans react?

As you watch the State of the Union address, we'd like you to send us any questions you would like answered from the American people's perspective. For example, does idea X have majority support? Will most Americans be receptive to approach Y? Who is most likely to favor a specific proposal? Who is most likely to oppose it? Does your personal view line up with those of other Americans from your demographic group?

We'll dig through our data and have answers for you on

To submit a question, e-mail us at or submit a video question on our YouTube channel.

In the meantime, be sure to read Jeffrey M. Jones' analysis on the impact of State of Union addresses past. We'll be able to measure the short-term impact of this year's speech in our Gallup Daily tracking of Obama's job approval rating by Sunday, when we'll have three days of interviewing after the speech.

I would like to see the President speak on the Internation Campaign to Ban Landmines, and explain why he did not sign the treaty.
