US polls 2016: Hillary Clinton wins Guam; it looks almost over for Sanders

Washington, May 9: Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton won the Guam Democratic causes on Saturday (May 7), bagging 59.5 per cent of the votes while her opponent Bernie Sanders won 40.1 per cent.

In terms of votes, Clinton won 777 of them as against Vermont Senator Sanders's 528. With this victory, Hillary got four pledged delegates while Sanders got three.

The Democratic Party chairperson and vice-chairperson, who were uncommitted superdelegates previously, backed Clinton following the caucus results, as a result of which Clinton got the support of all five Guam superdelegates.

Clinton now has 2,224 delegates, including 1,709 pledged and 515 superdelgates. Sanders, who has been giving Clinton a close fight this primary season, has 1,447 delegates of which only 41 are superdelegates. To get the nomination, a Democratic candidate has to win 2,383 delegates.

Sanders trails by a big distance when it comes to the superdelegates and needs to win a significant number of them who are either unpledged or have endorsed Clinton.

The duo will lock horns in West Virginia on Tuesday (May 10) and then in Kentucky and Oregon on May 17.

In the Republican camp, on the other hand, Donald Trump has remained the only candidate in the fray after Ted Cruz and John Kasich withdrew on May 3 and 4, respectively, after the former won a series of contests.
