Poll: Newt Gingrich's lead slipping

With the Iowa caucuses are only two weeks away, the latest polling shows Newt Gingrich's status as GOP presidential front-runner is slipping. In a new CNN/ORC international poll, Gingrich and Mitt Romney are now tied for the lead with 28-percent.  Ron Paul is close behind and on the rise, with 14 percent. And trailing behind in the single digits is Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman.

Alina Cho talks with CNN senior political analyst Ron Brownstein about why the GOP race remains far from unsettled.
