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.

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.
