New to Keyword Planner and Number of Results are Confusingly Low

I am trying to research keywords in the keywords planner.  By example, I am searching the keyword phrase of "patriotic T Shirt" and I get 0 results?  Same with "Flag T Shirt".  This seems unbelievable.  The advice I have read tells me to use longer "long tail" keywords but these tend to show no results in the planner.  Am I doing something wrong?  Searching for the individual words in my phrase seems like the opposite of "long tail" and not relevant to the entire phrase.

Have read all the google documentation on the planner.  Is there a more thorough guide somewhere which might be helpful with details and methodology of a search?
