WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain says his "connection to the people" is why he's pulled ahead in some polls.
A new Iowa poll shows Cain leading with 23 percent support, while early front-runner Mitt Romney is at 22 percent.
Cain was asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" whether Romney, who's making his second run for the GOP presidential nomination, was disappointing the party.
Cain said he didn't think that was the case. Cain said he thinks Republicans "are genuinely enthused about what I'm saying and how I'm saying it."
