But what are local political analysts expecting him to say?
President Obama's State of the Union Address tonight comes as a recent Washington Post-ABC poll finds 50 percent of Americans disapprove of President Obama's performance.
In his fifth State of the Union Address, political analysts say the president will touch on the economy, raising minimum wage and immigration legislation.
Obama is expected to talk about raising the minimum wage to ten dollars and ten cents an hour which Federici thinks is a political strategy to help his party.
That executive decision could push Congress to put other legislation in place to raise the minimum wage across the country, an issue the president of the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership says is something they're constantly addressing.
