WYOMING — Bernie Sanders may have won the Wyoming caucus, but in terms of delegates it was a draw.

Sanders split the state’s delegates evenly with Hillary Clinton. Each picked up seven.

Democratic contests award delegates in proportion to the vote, so even the loser gets some. In Wyoming, Sanders’ victory with 56 percent of the vote wasn’t enough to secure an additional delegate over Clinton.

That means barely a change in the overall delegate count.

To date, Clinton has 1,287 delegates based on primaries and caucuses to Sanders' 1,037.

When including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate, Clinton has 1,756, or 74 percent of the number needed to clinch the nomination. Sanders has 1,068.
