Sheldon Adelson Is Poised to Give Donald Trump a Donation Boost  

NY Times By : JONATHAN MARTIN

The casino magnate Sheldon G. Adelson told Donald J. Trump in a private meeting last week that he was willing to contribute more to help elect him than he has to any previous campaign, a sum that could exceed $100 million, according to two Republicans with direct knowledge of Mr. Adelson’s commitment.

As significant, Mr. Adelson, a billionaire based in Las Vegas, has decided that he will significantly scale back his giving to congressional Republicans and direct most of his contributions to groups dedicated to Mr. Trump’s campaign. - Referenced Article

Today's new national Quinnipiac poll provides an exclamation point to that story: Donald Trump 28%, Ted Cruz 24%, Marco Rubio 12%, Ben Carson 10%, Chris Christie 6%, Jeb Bush 4%; no one else gets more than 2%. Add up the Trump/Cruz/Carson percentages, and you get 62%. - Referenced Article
