Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Friday sought to assure supporters in Seattle, Washington, that he had a realistic chance of beating Republican rival Donald Trump and winning the White House, on the eve of that state's Democratic caucus.

Sanders made the remarks at a podium placed at the home plate of the Seattle Mariners' Safeco Field.

"We have now won 11 states. And if there are large turnouts tomorrow in Washington, Hawaii and Alaska, we have a shot to win three more. And I believe that if we win here in Washington, we're going to win in California, we are going to win in Oregon, and we've got a real path toward victory to the White House," Sanders said.

He triggered wild cheers from the tens of thousands of supporters when he said polls suggested he was the man to beat the billionaire reality TV personality-turned-Presidential hopeful Trump.

"Don't worry, Trump will not become President. A recent CNN poll, consistent with many other polls, showed Hillary Clinton doing very well against Trump. She was beating him by 12 points. We were beating him by 20 points," he said, adding that the data also showed him ahead of other Republicans US Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
