Mid-Atlantic.  Most of population is in Wilmington-Newark corridor along I-95.  Mid-Atlantic mentality and a Philadelphia accent.  South of Dover is Dixie except for shore points.

The Delmarva Peninsula with the exception of the shore points are basically in Dixie.  Farming is HUGE and Southern accents a plenty.  Also strong GOP territory.  The Pine Barrens of Southern NJ are the same way without the Southern accents.

New Castle County is Mid Atlantic

Kent and Sussex seem to act more like the Upper South than the Mid Atlantic.

I agree as well. In my visits there is a significant transition from Wilmington to Dover. I'd consider the shore area to be a mix of Dixie and NJ coast in style and attitude.

Most encyclopedias and the like that I've seen call Delaware Southern.
