The 1992 United States presidential election in Delaware took place on November 3, 1992, as part of the 1992 United States presidential election. Voters chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Delaware was won by Governor Bill Clinton (D-Arkansas) with 43.52%% of the popular vote over incumbent President George H.W. Bush (R-Texas) with 35.33%. Businessman Ross Perot (I-Texas) finished in third with 20.45% of the popular vote.[1] Clinton ultimately won the national vote, defeating incumbent President Bush. Clinton comfortably won Delaware by a margin of 8.19%, and that confirmed the state's status as reliably Democratic, and it has voted Democratic in every election since.[2]
