5. As others have said....

The media wants a horse race scenario, to drag Hillary down as far as they can, and to profit off of tRump who is ratings GOLD. Remember when Hillary had a decent lead heading into the stretch of the California primary race, and all of a sudden there were 2 last polls (Out of ALL of the polls here in California) which showed a horse race scenario, and maybe even losing California, even though for many months she'd lead here in California by decent margins for a long while. While I knew she wouldn't win California by 18 points (Like one poll was suggesting), I knew she'd win by a comfortable margin of around 5-8 points. There was never one poll (Except a "weird" outlier poll) showing her losing California. Yet the final 2 weeks before the California primary, there the media was (Especially Laurence O'Donnell) touting these LAST 2 polls right before the California primary showing Hillary possibly losing California or Bernie winning it by 1-2 points.

Well, we know what happened....
