Default Is Delaware more conservative or liberal?

Hello,

My husband and I are considering moving our family to Dover. Can anyone tell me if Delaware, and even more specifically, Dover is more of a conservative or liberal state/city? I have tried searching on the internet, and am not quite sure how to find this information out.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

I am a newbie to DE but from my observation I'd say liberal or democratic.
Could I ask why?..........before I open my big mouth

One way to tell is by looking at the 2004 county-by-county "red/blue" map at USATODAY.com

New Castle is liberal, based in large part on the minority vote in Wilmington. Kent and Sussex counties are conservative. Elizamary's mention about being a newbie is key because as the population expands, and us liberal New Yorkers (and other states) start buying homes in Delaware, those numbers "may" change.

Regardless of the numbers and the colors, it's always my hope that we always find ways to get along with each other!

I'll jump in. That depends on how you define "conservative" and "liberal". If you are talking politics, Delaware is a long time democrat state.....at least as far back as I can remember, and I've been here since dirt!

By the way, Charlie.......seems everybody I've met in the last 20 years in and around Kent and Sussex County is from New York or New Jersey. In fact, the trek started back in the 50's when the New York potato farmers started buying up farm land in Delaware.

Yes, we are a small state, and have had a population explosion. Delaware is about 97 miles long, and between 9 and 47 miles wide at the widest point. We only have 3 counties, and I realize that our whole state is smaller than many counties in other states.

I'd say it's pretty moderate. We have Joe Biden thanks to Delaware
