Pollster John Zogby updates our weekly Obama Report Card with a grade on the president's performance. Zogby uses his polling, expert analysis, and interaction with major players to come up with a grade and some comments that capture how he sees Obama's week ending.
John Zogby on Week 60:
"It's anybody's guess as to whether there are enough votes in the House to pass the Senate healthcare bill, but both sides concede that it is within striking distance. There is an uptick in public support for healthcare reform. Plus, the latest employment numbers, if not good news, at least weren't terrible news. Make no mistake, it's still not rosy out there, but the president's polling numbers are holding steady."
This week's grade: B+
Last week's: A-
