3. There is no political energy

to perennial candidates, they're just a bunch of old show horses touting
the same venom

Trump and Sanders have novelty and freshness,

HRC less so because of Bill and her Senate/State Department days.

JEB! has family baggage that he may not overcome.

5. 1 percent means 10 people

It is important to note that in a poll of 1000 'voters', 10% means 100. 1% means 10. 0.1% means 1.
Most polls contact about 900 voters, really big ones 1,100. It's expensive.

so, 3% for Crispie means at most only 30 silly fools said 'yes'. 'margin of error' means maybe 20 or 40. Who knows their motivations? Or how decently representative they are.

Bottom line--1% means a mere handfull/dozen people.

7. Graham can't even get 5% in his home state
