    A new voter survey conducted for Fox 12 and Oregon Public Broadcasting shows ... According to the results from DHM Research, if the primary vote tallies match typical numbers, Clinton could beat Sanders by 15 percent. Though gender seems to play little role in voter preference, voters are split by age when it comes to candidate support. In voters older than 45, Clinton sees twice the support of Sanders, but in those younger than 45, the Vermont senator has three times the support as the former secretary of state. Clinton is also polling stronger with those who vote more frequently,...

    A new poll of Republican voters in Oregon finds that Donald Trump has a double-digit lead in the state’s May 17 primary, while Ted Cruz is second despite pulling out of the state.

It is the first public poll of the Republican presidential race in Oregon this year. Cruz has agreed not to campaign in Oregon and New Mexico in exchange for Kasich pulling out of Indiana. The two are trying to prevent Trump from getting a...

    Donald Trump has been saying it for months, and now as he continues to build his delegate lead over his GOP rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich, he is demanding Republicans unify and prepare to go to war with the Hillary Clinton campaign. And now a longtime Democrat Party consultant has just admitted it is that war that Hillary has feared the most. The consultant went on to explain that of all the GOP candidates remaining, Ted Cruz would be by far the easiest for Hillary to defeat, though she also indicated any “regular” Republican would have been far simpler...

    The idea was floated over the weekend by Jon Karl on ABC, as you’ll see below, and started some conservative tweeters chattering. I think there’s more upside to it than downside, but there are downsides. Cruz needs media oxygen in the next week, a way to have the story not just be Trump's NE sweep. Not a lot of ways to get that.— Ross Douthat (@DouthatNYT) April 25, 2016 Picking a running mate now could limit his dealmaking options at the convention.

    HOLLYWOOD, FLA. — The Republican National Committee's rules committee on Thursday chose to punt on changing rules for how a presidential nominee is chosen in a contested convention. In avoiding a high-profile battle to simplify the rules, the committee rallied behind chairman Reince Priebus's repeated insistence that no changes should be made before the July convention. The committee adjourned just one hour after it began without making any changes, including one that could have made it more difficult for party leaders to nominate a "white knight" candidate — someone not currently in the race who could take on Donald Trump...

    Donald Trump was giving it his all during a final rally in New York Monday, but in the midst of his speech he made a flub. In a video obtained by CNN, the GOP candidate accidentally refers to 9/11 as the convenience store 7-Eleven, probably best known for its Slurpees. "I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down," he said.

    Trump announced Wednesday that his team hopes to seal a presidential nomination for him in the Hoosier State. “It’s an honor to have someone of Rex’s caliber and prestige, wisdom, and all his years of experience here in Indiana,” said Tony Samuel, the Vice Chairman of the Trump Indiana Campaign.

    The North Dakota GOP this weekend picked the 25 delegates it will send to this summer’s national Republican convention—a complicated and opaque process that involved one group of delegates voting for another group of delegates without knowing which presidential candidate they actually support. Naturally, then, all three GOP hopefuls claimed varying degrees of victory, none more than Ted Cruz. “Cruz Declared Winner in North Dakota,” blared a Cruz press release that quoted the candidate boasting of a “resounding victory” in a contest where none of the delegates were actually awarded to any of the candidates. “Whether we defeat Donald Trump...

    After Ted Cruz‘s big win in Wisconsin, Donald Trump immediately went on the offensive, claiming that Cruz ‘illegally’ coordinated with a super PAC to produce damaging anti-Trump ads. Under FEC rules, candidates are not supposed to directly coordinate with super PACs which are allowed to raise unlimited funds from individuals, companies, and other groups. We did some digging into Trump’s claim, and found that he may, in fact, have a case. The rules around what it means to ‘coordinate’ are murky. consulted with election law experts who agree that Cruz got himself into some gray area with at least...

Now Sibley claims that some never-before-aired information found in the records of said madam “could be relevant” to the upcoming presidential election. How so? Well, he can’t say. Sibley is bound by restraining orders imposed by the court in the case of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who committed suicide in 2008 soon after she was found guilty of racketeering and money laundering.

    Washington (CNN)Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was prepared to drop out of the Republican presidential race had he lost his home state on Super Tuesday, he confirmed Wednesday, and is asking Florida Sen.

But Rubio, his chief rival in the anti-Donald Trump contest, is not faring much better. Now, heading into a critical two-week stretch before the primary in Rubio's home state, Cruz is aiming to change the narrative, working to sell his own...

    TULSA, Okla. — Striking a more populist tone ahead of Super Tuesday, Ted Cruz delivered a revamped stump speech to a raucous Oklahoma rally Sunday. The campaign, he said, is dedicated to “all the working men and women with calluses on your hands.” “This election is going to be about three key ideas: Jobs, freedom and security,” he said. He cast his differences on immigration with rival Marco Rubio as a question not only of values but of jobs, arguing the “amnesty” Rubio supported in the Gang of 8 plan would hurt Americans’ employment prospects. As for Trump, he said,...
