    Was it something he said? The number of people who tuned into President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday was slightly down from 2012. Thirty-three and a half million people watched the president's live speech in comparison to 38 million last year, according to Nielsen ratings. It makes sense that Obama's audience was biggest during his first go in 2009 (52.9 million), but this year’s 33.5 million viewers account for the smallest audience to watch the annual address since Bill Clinton’s last address in 2000.
