Matt makes an excellent point:

If you look at the breakdown of the results, you'd need to believe that white women, but not white men, are inclined to lie to pollsters about that.

There was a backlash by women against the media's coronation of Obama. There may well have been something about Clinton implying that she was an older woman who was being passed over by a less experienced man for a job. That may well have resonated with some women, especially after she seemed actually human in the last two days. Once Clinton was weak enough to ask for their help, they gave it to her. But that's not the kind of thing that happens twice. And she's the front-runner again. For a while.
