The 1948 United States presidential election in Delaware took place on November 2, 1948, as part of the 1948 United States presidential election. State voters chose three[2] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Delaware was won by Governor Thomas Dewey (RNew York), running with Governor Earl Warren, with 50.04% of the popular vote, against incumbent President Harry S. Truman (DMissouri), running with Senator Alben W. Barkley, with 48.76% of the popular vote.[3][4] This is the last time that New Castle county did not back the statewide winner, when the Democratic candidate would win a presidential election without Delaware, and the last election until 2000 when Delaware failed to support the overall winner of the presidency, and electoral college.
