Yep - the people telling us how it is don't know how it is so it's all a surprise to them http://billmoyers.com/story/sanders-and-trump-how-the-political-and-media-establishment-got-2016-so-wrong/
Perhaps the biggest story coming out of campaign 2016 is not the rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, but the fact that the media and political establishment never saw it coming. And the fact that they never saw it coming perfectly explains the rise of Sanders and Trump.
