(CNN) - With days counting down to Iowa's kickoff to the presidential voting season, Michele Bachmann is hitting airwaves in the state to boost her presidential bid.
The two 30-second spots, which feature Bachmann supporters praising the candidate for her candor and socially conservative views, are culled from interviews during Bachmann's campaign swing through all 99 counties in Iowa.
"She says she's not a politician. I like that," says a man in one ad.
Another voter praises Bachmann's campaign style, saying "Whenever she speaks, there's a passion in her, and it's real."
In addition to running statewide on Iowa television stations, the spots will be featured on radio and on the Internet.
Bachmann's campaign strategy has long been focused almost exclusively on Iowa. The Minnesota congresswoman was born in the state, and enjoyed an early boost after winning the Ames Straw Poll in August.
Bachmann previously ran ads in Iowa over the summer that focused on her Iowa roots, as well as fiscally conservative credentials.
Bachmann's standing in Iowa polls has decreased since an early peak after the straw poll win. An Iowa State/Gazette/KCRG poll, taken December 8-18, showed Bachmann in fifth place in Iowa, at 7%.
On Thursday, Bachmann downplayed those numbers, telling CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King the numbers were insignificant.
"There's polls up and down all day. Who cares?" she said.
