(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann paid a visit to Trump Tower in New York Thursday to meet with real estate mogul Donald Trump.
It was the third such visit for the Minnesota congresswoman, who said she and Trump had a "wonderful breakfast" and agreed to continue a "close relationship."
Trump passed on his own bid for the White House earlier this year and has since hosted major GOP candidates at his home.
Bachmann noted the reality television star's penthouse was "impeccable" and that his chef served a breakfast of fruit, coffee, juice and egg whites.
The trip follows a rough patch for the candidate whose national poll numbers have declined recently. A CNN Poll of Polls released Thursday showed Bachmann at 5% behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 23%, businessman Herman Cain at 20%, Texas Gov. Rick Perry at 14%, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas at 10% and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 6%.
But Bachmann maintained her campaign is strong and that the poll numbers are simply a sign of the race's volatility.
"I think what it says is that this is absolutely volatile and that it's anyone's to win right now," Bachmann said after her meeting with Trump. "It is not solid. Every day it's a new person who could be president of the United States."
She pointed specifically to her August win at the Ames Straw Poll in the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa as a sign of her political strength.
"I'm the only candidate that won the Iowa straw poll. That is the most significant straw poll in this race," Bachmann said. "We are very well-positioned in this race and we look forward to competing and winning."
