Delaware moved its primary from April 28 to July 7 because of the coronavirus pandemic. In the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton won Delaware with 53.09% of the vote, compared with Donald Trump’s 41.71%. From 1952 to 2000, Delaware picked the winner of the popular vote in every presidential election. The streak was broken in 2004, when the state voted for Democrat John Kerry over Republican George W. Bush by a margin of almost 8 percentage points. The state has voted Democratic in the last seven presidential elections. Democrats control the stateLegislature, the governor’s office and the congressional delegation. Delaware has only three counties: Kent, New Castle and Sussex. Most close statewide elections are settled in New Castle County, which includes heavily Democratic Wilmington and more Republican-leaning suburbs.
