WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's State of the Union address this evening is expected to be brimming with optimism.

Over the past year, Obama has reached a nuclear deal with Iran, re-launched diplomatic relations with Cuba, secured a global climate pact and an Asia-Pacific trade deal, and negotiated a budget deal with the Republican-led Congress.

But the country is less optimistic. Last month's NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll said 7 in 10 Americans see the U.S. heading in the wrong direction.
