In similar news, a poll of Idaho voters shows that they would welcome such a move. KATU-2 TV reports,“A recent poll of 1,100 Idaho voters found a majority in support of adding parts of rural Oregon to the Gem State. The most popular reason?

Of those polled, 35% were opposed; another 14% were undecided.”
