Hillary is winning because of two reasons.
Imagine if you wanted to be President of the free world.
You would call all the 45 plus sages of persuasion to your side and follow their advice.
If you are like 1000 other people in the world, you would just hire the best and take it home.
Yes, having the master of persuasion on your side seems like a cool thing now.
That is why she is winning. Hahaha.
