Sanders wins Wyoming but only gets a delegate split

Yes, Sen. Sanders won Wyoming. But the 14 delegates were split 7-7:

News bulletin: We just won Wyoming,” Sanders said as the room exploded into cheers.
Sanders won 55.7% of the vote to Clinton’s 44.3%, giving each candidate seven delegates. That helps Clinton maintain her pledged delegate lead over Sanders, 1,304 to 1,075.
A Clinton campaign aide said their “secret sauce” in Wyoming was the state’s onerous vote-by-mail rules that required anyone voting by mail to have voted as a Democrat in the 2014 midterms.

I have no problem with Sanders continuing to fight. I have no problem with his taking his case to the superdelegtes (those who aren’t elected).

I DO have a problem with people who say that Sanders represents “the will of the people”; Hillary Clinton continues to enjoy a large lead in the popular vote.
