6. Don't ask me.

I'm as baffled by this as you are. My only guess is that not too many people are really paying attention. They hear the 10 second sound bytes and think they're "informed". I keep telling myself that the vast majority of people aren't political junkies like us, and that they don't search for the truth in order to be truly informed. This is why a carnival barker like Trump happened in the first place.
