In his weekly presidential report card, pollster John Zogby finds that President Obama succeeded in avoiding the typical presidential "August blues" even as stocks detoured and his bid to win support for the Iran nuclear deal labored on.

Reviewing the week, which started with a stock dive, Zogby reports:

"The stock market did in fact rebound, although who knows what lurks in the future. GDP growth projections were adjusted upward to 3.7 percent, which is pretty robust. And new influential Democrats have signed on to support the administration's Iran nuclear deal. Twelve more to go.

"It is now late August and he has so far survived the August blues. What's more, vacation reports say that Mr. Obama has played 248 rounds of golf during his tenure. I aspire to that myself."
