Finding himself still trailing non-politicians Donald Trump and Ben Carson in GOP presidential polls, a bemused Sen. Lindsey Graham wondered why he is losing to one candidate who tried to stab someone and another who is "crazy as hell."

Appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Graham referred to a recent revelation from Carson that he attempted to stab a friend when he was 14.

The bemused Graham then offered up his side on the upcoming primaries.

"Can I give you the take on this race?" Graham proposed. "On our side, you’ve got the number two guy tried to kill somebody at fourteen. And the number one is high energy and crazy as hell. How am I losing to these people?”

Graham later added, "And I’ve tried to murder no one, ever. So this should move me up a little bit.”
