URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann doesn't put much stock in polls that show her doing poorly in today's Iowa caucuses.
Bachmann tells CNN "polls go up and down and the sample size is very small." She says that over the last two weeks she's seen thousands of people "flip" and go her way.
Bachmann, who calls herself the "one true conservative" in the GOP race, told Fox News she believes there's "a lot of soft, hidden support that's going to come out tonight for the caucuses."
The Minnesota congresswoman planned to make her final appeal for support at a caucus site in Blackhawk County, where she spent her early years.
Every recent poll put Bachmann in last place heading into the caucuses.
URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann faces low expectations in Iowa's caucuses, where a poor showing could effectively doom her campaign.
The Minnesota congresswoman plans to make her final appeal for support Tuesday at a caucus site in Blackhawk County, where she spent the first years of her life. Her schedule ahead of the night's voting is packed with interviews on Iowa airwaves and with conservative radio shows nationally.
Every recent poll puts Bachmann in last place heading into the caucuses, a far cry from her summer win in a state GOP straw poll. But top campaign advisers vow she will prove the recent surveys wrong by activating a support network built through her visits to small towns and churches in every corner of Iowa.
