Carly Fiorina. I think she spoke the most sincerely.

She answered questions as if there was no one else on the stage with her, which is how politicians should act when discussing these issues. I think you will certainly see a spike her poll numbers as a result of this debate.

Chairman, Oregon Republican Party

In a way, I think they all did.

I think the content was much improved from the first debate. It gave voters a chance to see the differences between them. They may come from the same base, but they showed they have different ways of making decisions.

I think Donald Trump performed very well, as always.

We also saw promising things from Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz for the first time. The ones who shouted the loudest, I think, fared very well.

Bud Pierce

Republican Candidate for Governor of Oregon

Donald Trump.

He speaks so plainly. You can’t help but notice the difference between the clarity of his points against the flowery prose we get from people who hold office. That's clearly been very attractive to voters.

With the country bedeviled by problems I think when people here that political language, its really a turn off.
