Rep. Michele Bachmann is brushing aside poll numbers that show her trailing badly in the Republican presidential campaign in Iowa, saying, "I think we're perfectly situated to be where we want to be."

People are "going to be shocked on Jan. 3 when we see the results" in Iowa, the Minnesota Republican said today on "The Early Show" on CBS. She conceded that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is on a hot streak, adding that "two weeks can be an eternity" in the presidential campaign.

Bachmann appeared Tuesday as campaign rival Mitt Romney awaited an endorsement from former Vice President Dan Quayle.

Bachmann calls the GOP race "a political Wall Street," with candidates' stock rising and falling.

Both Romney and Gingrich supported Obamacare, said Bachmann, who also accused Romney of flip-flopping on "life" issues.

What's more, both Romney and Gingrich "have significant flaws," she said.
