Delaware loves Joe Biden. At least that’s what they say. And generally, it’s pretty much true, not least of all because so many people in Delaware have met “Uncle Joe,” served him as a customer, have seen him in person or just plain know him and his family.

The First State is also a very blue state. We have an all-Democrat lineup of representatives on U.S. Congress. Our three electoral votes have invariably gone to the Democratic candidate in the past seven presidential elections. The 2020 Presidential Election is highly unlikely to bring about different results, with President Donald Trump’s popularity at an abysmal -14 according to Morning Consult’s polling in the state.

That means Biden, who officially announced his candidacy on Thursday, would certainly win Delaware’s vote – if he were to become the nominee. That will be the bigger hurdle.

Some shower him with love:
