11. Both leaderships polled their membership...

According to SEIU, the union carried out three national town hall meetings and polled membership three times since last year before settling on Clinton as a candidate.

The decision came after the union had conversations with all candidates, including Clinton, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. All three candidates participated in town hall meetings with the unions in Iowa earlier this year and the union used three member polls to gauge which candidates their members we backing.

...but I guess a conspiracy theory works better.
