Durham, NC - Several Duke political science and public policy experts will participate in a live Twitter chat during President Obama's state of the union address Tuesday night.

The address is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. EST. 

Professors David Schanzer and Don Taylor of the Sanford School of Public Policy will join political science professors Paula McClain and Michael Ward and religion professor Ebrahim Moosa. Postdoctoral associate Natalie Jackson of SSRI will also take part in the chat. Each will share their analysis, reaction and reflections on the president's speech in the public forum. 

Follow the chat here. Others are welcome to join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtags #DukeChat and #SOTU. 

Obama will reportedly discuss American values, the middle class and lay out a blueprint for the economy. He will likely call for a full extension of the payroll tax cut set to expire next month.
