• I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Delaware Republican Committee for their outstanding inability to field any viable candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. I expect that we will see your resignations any time now. I am embarrassed to admit that I am a lifelong registered Republican. — Bob Skuse

• More sad news for this state. — Doug Poore

• The same sort of survey/poll that predicted the 2016 election? — John Chambers

• Russians won’t influence this one.— Peter Giaquinto

• These results are a bit more outside of the margin of error. — Michael McKain

• Could you give any reason to vote blue? Besides higher taxes, open borders and higher unemployment. — Stephen Malkowski

• 908 registered voters, out of about 700,000 and you call this a valid survey. — Jeff Grzeszczak

• It’s actually a rather large sample size for a small state. While any one poll can be an outlier, they generally fall within their own reported margin of error. — Michael McKain

• Delaware is stuck with one-party rule. Sad. — Philip L Puschel

• So you can’t even get 1,000 voters. A red wave coming in November. — Kim Grosso

• These are the same people that said Trump wouldn’t win. — Sara Hisaw Lancaster

• There is going to be a massive red wave. It will be the first. The next will be re-electing our president and electing new leadership for the Republicans with no guts. — Dana Watford Kavanagh
