Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said Wednesday she is not concerned that she has been lagging behind in national polls since she was considered a top Republican contender in the spring and her upcoming 99-county tour of Iowa will show caucus voters in her home state that she is the only “true constitutional conservative” in the presidential race. 
“There has been only one election in Iowa so far, the straw poll — and I won it — so I feel very good about that,” Bachmann told Fox News’ Neal Cavuto. “And, of course, that was the first chapter — the last chapter has not been written. And in the middle — in between chapters, that’s when you have all your drama. So I really think, Neil, when we see . . . January 3 come about, Iowans are going to come home.

“They’re going to see that I am the one true constitutional conservative who can actually defeat Barack Obama — because we need a bold, clear, distinct choice,” Bachmann said. “I’m not a big liberal — I’m not a big-spending Republican — we have problems with our leading contenders right now in that category. I am not a crony capitalist — and so I think that is what we`re going to see. Iowans are going to [come] back home.

The Iowa native noted that no one has attempted the Herculean task of criss-crossing the state and visiting 99 counties in 10 days and says the tour will bring her to the forefront in what has been a topsy-turvy battle for the GOP nomination.

“You`re going to see a lot of volatility between now and January 3, because the estimates are that 60 percent of the people still have not made their minds up yet,” Bachmann said. “And I really do believe that Iowans are going to come back home — I’m an Iowa girl — I was born here, raised in Iowa. And I think that Iowans are going to come home and choose an Iowan for the White House — and I am really looking forward to January 3.”
