Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama checked off a long list of wins to offset a few losses in what amounted to a comeback week.

"Oyez, readers of the Right. Beware of the Ides of March. You are going to hate this week's report card.

“Let's take stock: 175,000 new jobs were created, more people are looking for work, the deficit is down, and the national debt is being peeled away. The West, led by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, is speaking with one voice now to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“And Mr. Obama's polling numbers are up a couple of points. Voters support every piece of the Affordable Care Act except the mandate and 54 percent say they want it mended not ended. Plus, he gets a whole letter for the Zach Galifianakis interview because he found an effective way of reaching his core of young supporters — and perhaps even some who were at the CPAC convention.

“The GOP won the very expensive and highly watched Florida 13th [Congressional District] race — but the Democrat showed strong support among independents, especially on mending Obamacare. Still a good week."
