Things are still too early to call in North Dakota and Idaho. Washington State is expected to take days to count, thanks to their mail-in ballot process.
Will Democrats take James Carville's advice and shut down primaries after Biden's landslide? Only time will tell.
A close Sanders win in Washington is possible, but would not solve his problems. In 2016, when the state held a caucus, Sanders won by such a landslide that he netted 47 delegates. A 1-point win would net him just a few delegates over Biden.— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) March 11, 2020
According to Decision Desk HQ, Washington will be like California. It will take days before we know the actual winner.

Good luck with that.
If Biden gets this nomination and wants Bernie supporters - he’s going to have to concede & negotiate on issues. We need to be able to inspire voters on the issues that moved us/them to support Bernie Sanders. I think this is fair and reasonable. We have to push him to the left.— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) March 11, 2020
Washington will be one to watch.
816k vote dump in Washington - Biden/Sanders basically tied statewide. Only 805k votes cast total in the non-binding beauty contest primary that Clinton won last time. Obviously turnout will be way way higher— Kyle Kondik (@kkondik) March 11, 2020
Third of Washington votes so far are for candidates no longer in race -- meaning that these are older votes. That Biden/Sanders are basically tied among these votes is probably a great sign for Biden given the growth in his support lately and as votes cast more recently come in https://t.co/W3qXf2GCzb— Kyle Kondik (@kkondik) March 11, 2020
