Three numbers to keep in mind Tuesday night as President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address: six, 30 and 43. Six as in the number of seats Republicans need to gain this November to take control of the Senate. 30: The historical average of House seats gained by the other party — in this case the Republicans — in a two-term president's “six-year itch” midterm election. And 43%, of course, is Obama's job approval rating — a reminder that his political standing is weak, though up slightly from its recent low point, as he stands before a closely divided Congress — and country — to lay out his agenda for year six of his presidency/CNN.

Question: Do you plan to listen to the president's State of the Union address tonight?
