    Empower Texans ^ | June 18, 2018 | Cary Cheshire
    At the Texas GOP Convention in San Antonio this past weekend, Republican delegates . . . participated in our straw poll, which asked for their thoughts on the most prominent Republicans: President Donald Trump and US Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. Unsurprisingly, Cruz got the highest marks. Eighty percent of those voting in our straw poll say they “Strongly Approve” of the junior senator’s performance in office. Both those who “Slightly Disapproved” and “Strongly Disapproved” combined for only 7.7 percent of respondents. The same can’t be said for the senior member of Texas’ US Senate delegation. For Cornyn, the...

    Red is the primary color of Hendersonville High. It’s also the color of its presidential nominee. The 2016 Election Symposium was held Friday afternoon in the Hendersonville High auditorium. Bearcat Nation chose Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in a race that came down to the final state. Similar in style to the Republican and Democratic national conventions, students were grouped by state and read their state’s choice for president out loud in the auditorium using the Electoral College process. The symposium was the culmination of a week-long study by the entire student body of this...

  • Trump Leads Clinton In Photobooth Poll; Face Place Operators Are Big Winners As Debate Approaches

    Vending Times ^ | October 17, 2016 | Nick Montano
    GREENVALE, NY -- During the weekend leading up to the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, Donald J. Trump was ahead of Hillary Clinton by six points, according to polling at Face Place photobooths. While these results might be counter to most news media polls, which show the Democrat ahead of her Republican rival, Apple Industries, the manufacturer of Face Place, says Clinton is now closing the gap. Photobooths enabled with the election option (free to operators) offer patrons a choice of having their visages composited with their choice of major-party candidates for president in this year's race. The informal...

    The Times of Trenton ^ | October 8, 2016 | Brent Johnson
    Today is Oct. 8. That means it's exactly a month until American voters head to the polls to pick whether they want Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump, other another candidate to be their next president. Who do you think will win the race? Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state, and Trump, the celebrity businessman, have been waging a nasty, relatively close battle for the last few months. Clinton has cast Trump as being too dangerous to be commander-in-chief. Trump has painted Clinton as being too untrustworthy and weak to serve in the White House. Polls, meanwhile, show both...

    PlasticsToday ^ | September 12, 2016 | Norbert Sparrow
    As I write this on September 12, the latest CNN poll has Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in a “near-even race” for the presidency of the United States. At PlasticsToday, we did our own online survey but asked our audience to rank the candidates on a single issue: Who would be best for U.S. manufacturing. Setting aside missing emails, the bromance with Vladimir Putin, trustworthiness and temperament, and sundry other issues, we asked the PlasticsToday audience to respond to a specific question: Disregarding all other qualities and flaws of the presidential candidates, who do you think would best represent...

    A new 20,000-voter straw poll by the Senate Conservatives Fund shows Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) out in front of the other 2016 candidates with 65 per cent of the vote. Donald Trump came in second, with 25 per cent support, even though he holds the lead in delegates ahead of the four March 8 presidential primary races. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), banking on a win in his home state of Florida, came in fourth place, with a mere 3.11 per cent support. Ohio Gov. John Kasich barely beat out Rubio with 3.44 per cent.

    The Lexington Herald-Leader ^ | September 26, 2015 | Sam Youngman
    LEXINGTON,Ky. — Rand Paul was right. In January 2014, the day after The Atlantic anointed Paul, Kentucky’s junior U.S. Senator, as the Republican frontrunner in the 2016 presidential race, Paul told the Herald-Leader “it’s still too early probably to talk about things like that.” “That sounds unlucky to me,” he said. Less than two years later, Paul’s luck, it seems, is running out. Campaigning on Friday in New Hampshire, Paul continues to charge ahead with his struggling presidential campaign, but speculation is growing that he might be the next Republican candidate to drop out of the race. Former Texas Gov....

    Sen. Ted Cruz grabbed the top spot in a new presidential straw poll — the first time the Texas lawmaker has done so in seven surveys of the GOP field. In the political magazine The Weekly Standard's survey, Cruz had 30 percent of the first place votes of its readers, followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, with 26 percent, and Donald Trump, at 17 percent. Here's the magazine's tally, with the first number the percentage of the ballots on which the candidate was selected for first place — and the second number representing the percentage of ballots in which the...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has easily won a straw poll of Minnesota Republican activists. Cruz finished first among 14 Republican candidates in the poll at the Minnesota GOP State Central Committee meeting Saturday in Monticello. Cruz claimed 90 votes. That was almost twice the votes for the second-place finisher, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who had 46 votes. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina came in third. GOP front-runner Donald Trump finished fourth in Saturday's straw poll, followed closely by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Minnesota is one of a dozen states that will hold a primary or caucus on Super Tuesday March...
