Bernie Sanders has dealt a crushing blow to Hillary Clinton, winning the Democrats Abroad primary by a more than two-to-one margin.

Sanders won the primary with 69 per cent of the vote, and will pick up 9 pledged delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention.

Clinton won just 31 per cent of the vote, and has won only 4 delegates.

Close to 35,000 people took part in the Democratic global presidential primary from over 170 countries. International secretary Julia Bryan said the turnout was unprecedented.

“This political revolution that is gaining momentum across America is now resonating all over the world,” Sanders said in a statement.

“There is a clear path to victory as we begin the second half of the delegate selection process. We are waging a strong campaign and plan to take it all the way to the Democratic National Convention this summer in Philadelphia.”
