Most television viewers across the country will have to wait until after the State of the Union Address is over to hear how voters across the country felt about the President’s performance. But some viewers in the Washington, D.C. metro area as well as other key markets across the country will be able to see voters’ reactions live and in real-time as the president is speaking.

Washington, D.C.-based, ABC-affiliate WJLA-TV and Sinclair Broadcast Group are partnering with Dialsmith to run a live dial testing focus group during today’s State of the Union Address. Focus group members, consisting of a mix of D.C., Virginia and Maryland area voters, will be watching the State of the Union Address live and providing continuous, real-time feedback using hand-held dials powered by Dialsmith’s Perception Analyzer technology. Feedback from each group member is collected every second, aggregated with other members, and displayed as a line chart on the bottom of the screen. The end result gives viewers a “running score” of how voters in the group are responding in-the-moment to the president’s Address as it’s happening.

“We’re excited to partner with Dialsmith to present our viewers with a unique perspective on the State of the Union address,” said Greg Massoni, Sinclair Broadcast Group Executive Producer of Town Halls. “Using Dialsmith’s Perception Analyzer technology and dial testing expertise, we're able to give our viewers a real-time window into how local voters are reacting to what the president says in his State of the Union.”
