"Is Donald Trump the Iowa front-runner? Ask Michele Bachmann"

"It reminds me a lot of four years ago, with the flavor of the month. It will be interesting since we don't have the straw poll to winnow people out," McGee said.

In August of 2011, that flavor of the month was Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann. She won the presidential straw poll, considered a major accomplishment by her underdog campaign. She finished sixth in the caucuses five months later and dropped out of the race. The winnowing occurred with former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who exited the 2012 race after finishing third in the straw poll. Santorum, who finished fourth, would end up winning the caucuses.
