Pollster John Zogby reveals in our weekly White House report card that more people than ever disapprove of President Obama's job performance and that it's unlikely he will return to his once lofty job approval highs.

"Trust is like virginity: once you lose it it's hard to get it back.

“Our brand new Zogby Analytics poll (November 18, 895 likely voters) shows President Obama's approval rating at 41 percent, not his lowest, but down two points from just three days before.

“Most ominous for Mr. Obama is that 57 percent now disapprove of his job. That is his worst number yet. This includes 57 percent of men and 55 percent of women; 51 percent of moderates, 24 percent of liberals and 24 percent of Democrats; 66 percent of independents and 40 percent of Hispanics.

“The November 30 deadline for straightening out the Obamacare website looms very large. I was tempted to give the president an F, but he bestowed the Medal of Freedom this week on ‘Mr. Cub’ Ernie Banks, a terrific thing to do."
