Michele Bachmann told ABC News she expects to defy her dismal poll numbers with a "miraculous" result in the Iowa caucuses.
"We're going to see an astounding result on Tuesday night - miraculous," Bachmann told ABC News in an interview at her Iowa campaign headquarters surrounded by young supporters from her alma mater Oral Roberts University.
"We're believing in a miracle because we know, I know, the one who gives miracles," Bachmann said.
Regardless of what happens Tuesday, Bachmann said her campaign would continue.
"Have faith, buddy," she told me. "You bet we're going forward. We just filed all of our signatures to be on the ballot in Ohio. We just stroked out a 10,000 dollar check yesterday to be on the ballot in Kansas City. We are moving forward."
Bachmann sees the stakes in stark terms, telling us that her opponents cannot defeat President Obama.
Gingrich? "No he can't beat Barack Obama because he is an insider, establishment, consummate insider who is the grandfather of Obamacare."
Romney? "No he cannot beat Obama because his policy is the basis for Obamacare. The signature issue of Obama is Obamacare. You can't have a candidate who has given the blue print for Obamacare. It's too identical. It's not going to happen."
