CNN: Scott Walker Comes in at Less Than 1/2 of One Percent in Latest CNN/ORC Poll

‘I said less than one-half of 1 percent’

“Breaking right now, a brand-new CNN poll, the first since Wednesday night's debate. And, in the immortal words of Ned Ryerson, it is a doozy, Donald Trump maintaining his first-place status, though his lead has dropped from 32 percent to 24 percent. But here are the real bombshells, Carly Fiorina leaping to second place, her debate performance landing her at 15 percent, squeaking by Dr. Ben Carson, who is now at third place with 14 percent. Also surging into fourth place, Marco Rubio, who also got rave reviews. He takes 11 percent, in double digits. He's jumping ahead of his mentor and friend Jeb Bush, who is treading water at 9 percent. Bush's supporters and donors have openly worried about his fall in the polls over the summer. But perhaps the most jaw-dropping number belong to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Once the leader in Iowa, once considered one of the top contenders in this race, he doesn't even register in this new poll, with less than one-half of 1 percent. That's right. I said less than one-half of 1 percent. It's a remarkable shakeup.”
