Just one voter showed up to Rick Santorum's campaign stop at a restaurant in Hamlin, Iowa,  on Monday, according to Politico.

With a population of 300, Hamlin eventually saw four Iowans assembled around the 2016 Republican hopeful's table where they munched on breaded tenderloin and a side of onion rings, Politico reported.

Santorum told The Des Moines Register he wasn't surprised by the low turnout — it was all part of the plan.

In 2011, Santorum visited 99 of Iowa's counties where he spoke to voters one-on-one, and in 2012, he ultimately defeated Mitt Romney by 34 votes in the state's caucus, The Des Moines Register reported.

"It’s not glamorous, and you’re not out there raising money, but you’re doing what the money is ultimately supposed to do — getting votes," Santorum told the Register. "This is a lot more fun than being on the phone raising money."

According to Politico, when visiting nearby Panora, Santorum's voter turnout increased by six, with people who asked the former Pennsylvania senator about his positions at a telecommunications company.
