- 51% (41% Strongly favor, 10% Somewhat favor) repealing the health care bill
- 58% favor Delaware enacting similiar immigration reform as was passed in the state of Arizona
- 56% disagree with the Department of Justic suing Arizona over the passage of their immigration bill
- 58% agree that immigration refrorm should keep out national security threats, criminals, and those who come here to live off our welfare system.

- 89% rate the U.S. economy either poor or fair.
- 43% believe economic conditions in the U.S. are getting worse, and 21% staying the same
