- Percentage Of Votes For Democratic President In 2020
Because no voting data exists at the city level, we used county-level election results from the 2020 election. We assigned every city in a county the percentage of votes that went to the Democrats, effectively extending the county’s results to the city level. In cases where larger cities encompassed an entire county, the election outcomes accurately reflected the city’s political landscape.
The winner, Wilmington, is “The Most liberal City in Delaware For 2023”. The most conservative place in Delaware was Delmar.
We updated this article for 2023. This report is our tenth time ranking the most liberal places to live in Delaware.
