"It will be an interesting test of momentum versus organization. Nobody has a better organization than Romney. Nobody had a better absentee ballot plan, and he's got a tremendous ground game, especially in south Florida where that's really important," Putnam said.

Gingrich would be a much general election candidate, who could hurt other Republicans up and down the ballot," he said. "There are potential downballot implications with a candidate like Gingrich, who is so well defined  defined with Republicans and Democrats, someone who has such a big gender gap problem, someone who reminds everybody of the 1990s - and not necessarily in a flattering way."
