Bernie Sanders’ supporters will want to get a live stream of results from the Saturday Wyoming Democratic Caucus, where Sanders is expected to score another big win over frontrunner Hillary Clinton, making the state his seventh victory in the last eight contests of the Democratic presidential primary campaign.
If indeed Sanders wins Wyoming as expected, six of those seven wins will have come in caucus states, not primary elections. With his hard core of passionate supporters, Bernie Sanders has been able to dominate caucus contests, which generally require a much higher level of commitment — and available time — on the part of their participants.
The Sanders campaign is, as usual, making an all-out effort to get supporters of the Vermont senator out to the caucus locations.

For example, for the Wyoming caucuses, doors will open at 9 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time — that’s 11 a.m. Eastern Time, 8 a.m. Pacific — on Saturday, April 9, but the caucuses will not get underway until two hours later. But anyone not in line by 11 a.m. local time will not be allowed to vote in the caucuses.
Once inside, the process becomes even more time-consuming, with caucus goers divided into four groups depending on their presidential preference or lack thereof (a third Democratic candidate, California real estate magnate Rocky De La Fuente, is also on the Wyoming ballot).
After those groups are counted, only the groups with at least 15 percent of the total attendees will be allowed to remain. Each group then picks two representatives who deliver speeches, in an attempt to persuade supporters of the other candidate, or leftover voters from the disqualified groups, to switch sides.
Only after that lengthy process finally wraps up do votes start getting counted by caucus officials.
There are several ways to get a live stream of the Wyoming Democratic Caucus results, which should start becoming clear in the mid-to-late afternoon, Eastern Time.
ABC News Go offers a continuous live news coverage stream in the video below.
For live Wyoming caucus coverage with a conservative tint, the right-leaning network Newsmax offers a stream in this video.
Another coverage, via UStream, can be accessed in the following video.
And for good measure, here is one final live stream that will carry Wyoming caucus results and analysis.
Why is Bernie Sanders heavily favored to win the Wyoming Democratic caucus — even without a single statewide poll having been taken? For a few important reasons. First, Wyoming is a caucus, not a primary.
Also, Sanders has made a more concerted effort to campaign in Wyoming, even holding a victory rally there on the night of his stunning Wisconsin primary victory on Tuesday, rather than staying in the state that had just given him “momentum.”

But most importantly, the demographics of the tiny state — with just over 500,000 people, the least populated state in the country — fall right in line with other states, especially caucus states, where Sanders has won big. For example, Sanders has won every state so far in which the population is under 8 percent African American.
The African-American population of Wyoming is a minuscule 1.6 percent, according to census data. On the other hand, Wyoming’s population is almost 93 percent white.
Finally, the western states, perhaps because they mostly share similar demographics, have been extremely friendly to Sanders. He won overwhelming victories in the Utah and Idaho caucuses, both of which are neighbors to Wyoming.
