    Sanders gathered the support of 81.6 percent of voters in Alaska and 72.7 percent in Washington, The Guardian reported on Saturday.

    Despite the success in the two western states, Sanders is still behind Clinton, who has had more victories in Democratic primaries and caucuses in comparison with her rival.

    The US presidential election is scheduled for November 8, 2016.
