As Republican candidates for president battle on this Super Tuesday, President Obama’s score in the msnbc.com Voter Confidence Index for March is now -15 in the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll.
Excluding the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011, that is his best VCI score in two years -- since January 2010.
It’s also 4 points short of where George W. Bush was when he was reelected in 2004.
