Thompson Says Standing In Polls Will Change

NEW YORK (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson brushed off concerns Thursday about his single-digit showings in recent Iowa and New Hampshire polls.

The actor and former U.S. senator from Tennessee said he expects a new television ad on immigration to help boost his numbers.

CBS/New York Times polls in Iowa and New Hampshire show Thompson at 9 and 5 percent for Republicans, respectively. Mitt Romney leads both states with 34 percent in New Hampshire and 27 percent in Iowa.

On Thursday, Thompson reiterated that the government should strip federal dollars from cities and states that don't report illegal immigrants.
