Democrats Take Note:

April 27, 2016


Delaware Winner: Hillary Clinton  

To see all results go to:

Did you vote yesterday?  Did you get out on a beautiful day here in Sussex County and push that X next to the candidate of your choice on the voting machine? 

Not quite 30% of registered Democrats in Sussex County made it to the polls yesterday for the Delaware Presidential Primary.  Close to 38% of registered Sussex County Republicans went out to vote.  Again.....
                                      Democrats:   30%
                                      Republicans   38%

In all of Delaware, 70% of registered Democrats did not vote in yesterday's primary.  
If this holds in the November General Election, we could easily be dealing with President Trump as of January 20, 2017.

Some more numbers:
- Registered Voters in Sussex County, as of 4/1/2016:
                               Democrats            57,462
                               Republicans           57,864
                               Other Parties:      35,214

        The numbers of registered Democrats and Republicans in Sussex County is extremely close, as can easily be seen. 
        We have to make the Democratic party in Sussex County attractive enough that some of those who are registered with other parties....or no switch their affiliation.
