A focus group assembled on Sean Hannity's show by pollster Frank Luntz was not impressed with President Obama’s State of the Union address, with most scoffing at his call for bipartisanship and few who voted for him saying they would again.

“I want to see a quick show of hands of everyone in this room: Did he exceed or fall short of your expectations? Who would say he exceeded, raise your hands? Two people. Who would say he fell short? A lot of you,” Luntz said, as he polled his audience of 29 voters — 13 of whom voted for Obama in 2008 — on a late Tuesday broadcast of “Hannity.”

Luntz then broached Obama’s bipartisanship call, with voters who identified themselves as Republicans indicating they didn’t buy into it. Most said they had heard the cooperation request before.

“So the question is, What is it about this appeal to bipartisanship that those of you on the Republican side don't like?” Luntz asked the group.

“When he first got into office he was going to be the president to change everything, come across the aisle. It never happened,” one man said.

Hannity then asked Luntz to pose a question: “Frank, of the 13 you say in the room that voted for Barack Obama — are they leaning towards re-electing him?” Seven people raised their hands.
