Question: When is a win not a "win"?
According to Nate Silver, Bernie Sanders needed a massive 57-point spread in today's Wyoming caucuses (equaling a 11-3 delegate split) in order to stay on track for a miracle comeback pledged delegate victory against Hillary Clinton. And considering that it's another caucus situation in a basically all-white state, such a margin wouldn't have surprised me.
Instead, Hillary won the two largest counties in the state (Laramie and Natrona) and kept Bernie's overall win margin so low that they are splitting the delegates 7-7!
See, as soon as I stop being optimistic about Hillary's caucus strength and start to ignore the results altogether...look what happens!The Clinton campaign is confident they will split delegates in Wyoming.

This is not a good way to end Bernie's already very bad week.
Next stop: New York.
