Why not DELAWARE for the FIRST PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY ??

In 2028, if not 2024--- proud home state of Our Fighting Democratic President !!!


NO state is smaller in area, except Rhode Island!
(meaning it is smaller in area, than even New Hampshire!)


THIS is a state where even obscure Democratic candidates could compete fairly in "retail politics"-- !

and demographically, it is 22% African-American--
which likely translates to nearly 50% AA in a Democratic presidential primary!


I do not oppose President Biden's preferences for the 2024 primary schedule, but I don't necessarily support all of it, either..
However, he is too modest to propose his home state as the first primary---
so I will do it for him here, in our obscure forum !!!


If we want states which have not previously 'had a voice' in the primary process, to finally HAVE a voice---
who better than DELAWARE?

Who knows when Delaware has been scheduled, and who remembers the results from any year???
All I know is that Joe Biden won it in 2020! hahahaha



As a very small state, where retail politics can make a difference, Delaware would appear to fit the bill even better than New Hampshire, as it is a smaller area.....

It was a slave state, who remained in the Union, and a border state.... and the ONLY 'slave state' who organized NO regiments to fight on the side of the confederacy in the civil war...)



Just throwing it out there.... I don't oppose my president's preferences for the 2024 schedule
(although I think NH and Nevada should not be on the same day, nor both only 3 days after South Carolina, that gives no-one any time to campaign)


The current proposed primary schedule is only for 2024, and I expect President Biden to run for re-election, rendering the question mostly moot, I hope... but I do agree with those who suggest that South Carolina should not be the first Democratic primary FOREVER---
since they have not supported our presidential candidate since 1976--


Yes, they DO represent AA voters in the party--
but Delaware could do that just as well...

and when was the last time the Democratic party lost Delaware??? Not sure...

1. I think they wanted a medium sized state

Iowa in particular with their caucuses drives me nuts. Although SC is red, the Democratic Party voters are likely representative of general election voters.

Iowa is too kooky. New Hampshire is OK with me. Iowa just seems to attract the wrong type of candidate.
SC has a higher AA population.

2. I thought of that right away. We really are a slice of American diversity here in Delaware

Never any problem voting. The primary isnít until September and itís kind of a moot point by then. We donít screw up our elections. We are actually east the Mason-Dixon Line. No loyalty to the south.
