Bernie Sanders has beaten Hillary Clinton to win the Wyoming democratic caucuses.
The man of the people won the western state with 56 percent of the vote in a run-up to a major primary being held in New York next week.
We appreciate and thank the people of Wyoming so much for their support! https://t.co/5QKg7o5h9R

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press reported that the Vermont senator won with 55,7 percent of the vote.
While the Wyoming success was Sanders’ seventh win in a row, in reality, it did little to narrow the gap between him and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
Clinton and Sanders have both secured 7 Wyoming delegates, according to AP.
However, the final result can still change, as only eight out of the 18 delegates to the National Convention are distributed in proportion to the primary election results, while the support of the other six delegates will be determined at a Wyoming state convention on May 28.
All four Wyoming superdelegates have already voiced their support for Clinton.
This latest victory for Sanders follows his landslide win in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary. In total, the Democratic underdog has secured 16 states compared to 18 won by Hillary Clinton. To date, Clinton commands a comfortable lead, with 1,287 delegates to Sanders’ 1,037. Taking into consideration the support of the party’s superdelagates, who can choose either side at the Democratic National Convention, Clinton’s advantage appears even more impressive, with 1,756 to Sanders’ 1,068.
