Obviously it's not as dramatic as the Fox News-style way of graphing, but I think it's pretty clear that a graphic like that is misleading. Sanders' name is bigger, the disproportionate colors, all the while the delegate advantage is relatively minuscule. You can say it's just a picture & the numbers are right there, but speaking purely psychology, it's meant to be slightly deceptive. A proper bar graph of those numbers vs. that picture would subconsciously give two different interpretations of the lead, plain & simple.

And unless Bernie squeaks out a win in NY, I doubt he's gonna win every state from here on out. Doesn't mean he can't still win, though.
