Pawlenty downplays poor Iowa showing

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) on Monday downplayed a weekend poll showing him trailing other Republican candidates in Iowa, despite his concentrated efforts there.

Pawlenty said he wasn't bothered by this weekend's Iowa Poll, which showed he was the choice of just 6 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers.

"These early polls aren't a good predictor of how the race is going to come out," Pawlenty said during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show.
