Rick Santorum tells Newsmax TV he expects to win big in the upcoming Iowa caucuses — but will re-evaluate his second GOP presidential run if he doesn't triumph.

The former Pennsylvania senator — who won the 2012 Iowa caucuses and finished the primary as runner-up to nominee Mitt Romney — said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" he will "absolutely" think about whether to continue if he places second or third.

"Look, I didn't [continue to] run for president four years ago and you know when your time is up," Santorum said.

"You realize, when they decided four years ago, when it wasn't fruitful to continue on. And if we're ever in that position this time around, I have no problems in making that call," Santorum said.

In a polling average compiled by RealClearPolitics.com, Santorum is third-to-last, ahead of only Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

But Santorum — now CEO of EchoLight Studios, which produces family-friendly G- and PG-rated movies — believes his campaign for conservative values will push him to the top once again.

"I feel very comfortable that we're going to do exceptionally well in Iowa. Whether we will win, I don't know. I wasn't predicting [with a] 100 percent guarantee we were going to win last time, but we came darn close and then eventually did win," Santorum said.

"Hopefully, this time we get a clean win and we can get the bump that comes with winning the Iowa caucuses on caucus night."
