Politico projection: Garcia tops Diaz-Balart

So says Norm Ornstein, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute:

"I was going to sit it out-- but what the hell," Ornstein says on Politico. "A seven point Obama popular vote margin, 52% to 45%. 380 electoral votes for Obama. Upset-- Obama takes Montana. Dems gain 28 House seats, leaving them with 263, and 8 Senate seats to get effectively to 59. In the House, Joe Garcia defeats Mario Diaz-Balart."
