VIDEO: Santorum hopeful for strong finish in Iowa

(CNN) – Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who's polling in the single digits in the GOP presidential race, said he's confident about a last-minute surge before the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3.

"Right now I think the expectation is pretty low for us, and that's an advantage," Santorum told CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King. "You've got six people in this race. If we can finish above two or three, that's a huge deal."

    Santorum did really well in the debates and is a sharp, well spoken guy. He would absolutely be a huge improvement over what we have now. But it's a strong field and I would say Mitt Romney is really in the best situation of all to step up and clean up the current messy financial situation, get the Federal government back in control and consistent with it's role and to provide the leadership America needs so desperately now.

    Santorum is in TOTAL DENIAL!! What a waste of time – I think he's really fighting for a number 2 position – that has to be all of what it's about!!!

    Mr. Santorum, as a devout Christian for over 50 yrs., I still prefer living in a democracy as opposed to a theocracy.
