Bane was only a step ahead of them because of his "mole", Talia.

I think the "blinding hope" was given in the film, but mostly to the 99%-ers who thought they could run this martial state that Gotham City is in without knowing the truth of the nuke having a countdown and it didn't matter that there was a trigger as it was going to go off anyways.
