Political panel: What does Cain's straw poll win say about the GOP presidential race?

Herman Cain took home a surprising win in Florida's straw poll over the weekend, although it is unlikely that he would ever win nationally. Mitt Romney led in a straw poll in his home state of Michigan, as Perry came up short following a disappointing showing at the latest GOP debate.

In light of the straw poll results and Perry's poor debate performance, Politico is reporting that there is a renewed cry for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to run for the candidacy, and he may decide within a week.

With so many candidates in the field, why do people still feel that the race for the GOP nomination is lacking?

Today on American Morning, Ron Brownstien, CNN senior political analyst, and Shira Toeplitz, politics writer, talk with Carol Costello about the 2012 GOP presidential race.
