U.S. states Alaska, Hawaii and Washington take their turn voting Saturday in the Democratic presidential nominating contest, with Hillary Clinton unlikely to deliver a knockout blow against resilient rival Bernie Sanders.Clinton has a commanding lead in the delegate race: 1711, including super-delegates who are un-elected by voters, compared to 951 for Sanders, according to a CNN count.Since they generally require voters to show up in person rather than mailing primary ballots, the format favors Sanders, whose supporters have consistently shown more grass-roots enthusiasm.His campaign pointed to a new poll released Thursday that shows Clinton, who entered the race as the Democrats' overwhelming favorite, deadlocked with Sanders. A Bloomberg Politics national poll found Sanders actually inching ahead of Clinton, 49 to 48 percent, among Democrats who voted or are likely to vote in the nominating contests. A series of recent polls has shown Sanders consistently doing better than Clinton against Republicans Trump, Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich. The delegate math still dramatically favors Clinton.
