New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently announced that he will not enter the White House race. Texas Governor Rick Perry's poll numbers have tumbled, especially after reports showed him and his family frequenting a hunting camp with a controversial name. President Obama's poll numbers slipped to the point where he declared himself an underdog in the 2012 election.

Michel Martin speaks with Ron Christie, a former assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney, and Corey Ealons, a former staffer for President Obama.
