DENVER – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders rolled to an easy victory over Hillary Clinton in the Colorado Democrat caucus on Tuesday night, one of four states he won on Super Tuesday.

With 98 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanders was leading the former secretary of state 59 percent to 40 percent.

A huge number of Democrats appeared at caucuses throughout the state to cast a straw poll for president. Republicans decided last year not to have a presidential poll at their caucuses.

Sanders made a handful of trips to Colorado, drawing big crowds in Boulder, Denver and Fort Collins.

Results showed Sanders had a nearly 10-point lead in Denver and bigger margins throughout the state.

In Denver’s south, east and north suburbs, Clinton took an early lead but by midnight, Sanders was seen in the lead.
