Hosted by

The Iowa Straw Poll drew a tiny minority of that state's voters to a Republican fundraiser on Saturday, but the results were disproportionate to the turnout. Texas Governor Rick Perry, who wasn't there for the straw poll is in; Tim Pawlenty is out. Is Michele Bachmann leaving enough room for Sarah Palin? Is Mitt Romney still the front-runner? What about Ron Paul? Meanwhile, President Obama begins a town-hall tour of swing states. We hear how his possible opposition is shaping up.
