The candidate list includes all registered Republicans who have announced their candidacy for the Presidency as well as those who have formed exploritory committees. Not included were those individuals who have publicly stated they will not run for President in the 2008 election.The following are the results of the first Delaware Presidential Primary Poll:All Respondents

    I am casting my vote for Ron Paul. Did you see the debate. He is by far the smartest and most consistant in his viewpoints. Did yo uhear the way the crowd reacted to him. the Fair tax? 23% Sales tax? What about no income tax, and dont increase the sales tax?

    Anyway, i am behind Ron Paul.

  3. Sman said,

    Ron Paul is a way better canidate compared to Rudy Guiliani who justspeels the same bullshit as every other republican politician.

  4. Greg Boulden said,

    Ron Paul. I’m a registered Republican in Delaware, and he’ll have my vote.

  5. Tommy said,

    Ron Paul will have my vote as well. He is the only candidate that answers the questions directly every time he is asked. He seems honest, and everything that he says is very logical.

  6. Wes said,

    I agree, with you… Honesty, integrity, and many other great characteristics that non of the other candidates have. I am all for Ron Paul. He actually reads and studies the issues that face America, he doesn’t just provide an ignorant personal statement on “Good vs Evil”.

    Who are the people voting for the others? I thought this was the GOP not the democratic party…. I cant tell the difference… all the candidates say the same political crap, just use a different spin and personal opinions… What happened to the rule of law and actually up holding it?

    As I see it your choices are democratic/socialist party… or Pro gun, Pro choice liberal socialist party of the GOP with the exception of Dr. Paul.

    I thought I was living in America “the land of the Free, home of the Brave” Not “the land of fear and home of the cowards”! I have never heard so much fear, especially over third world countries with barely any military from all these politicians on both sides of the isle.

  7. Tim said,

    Ron Paul has my vote. He would have 90 percent of the vote if the media would stop being jerks and lifted the ban on Paul. Delaware must vote for ron paul.
