NA­TION­ALLY. Trump and Clin­ton still leads their races na­tion­ally, in a poll by Quin­nipi­ac Uni­versity. For the Re­pub­lic­ans (Feb. 2-4; 507 Re­pub­lic­an RVs; +/- 4.4%), Trump leads with 31%, fol­lowed by Cruz’s 22% and Ru­bio’s 19%.

"The House passed a continuing resolution that would reopen nine Cabinet departments through Feb. 28 on a voice vote, a result that devolved into partisan sparring on the floor as Republicans sought to vacate the vote and Democrats said, in effect, too bad." After Republicans questioned why the measure was brought up via voice vote, Minority Whip Steve Scalise asked unanimous consent to reconsider the vote. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer objected, saying that "many members have already departed the Capitol to catch their planes home."
