Does New Jersey plan favor for Delaware?

The New Jersey plan does not favor Delaware. When the United States Constitution was being drafted in 1787, the New Jersey Plan was an option proposed by William Paterson, a New Jersey delegate. The Plan called for only one house of Congress with each state to have one vote in Congress instead of the number of votes being based on population. The New Jersey Plan was made as an alternative to the Virginia Plan, which provided for a central government with representation by population. The New Jersey Plan was opposed by the less populous states. The New Jersey Plan was supported by William Patterson, governor of New Jersey. Opposition was led by James Madison and Edmund Randolph (the proponents of the Virginia state Plan).
