|This article suggests that theres an even amount of support among activists for Pennacchio and Santorm. In the Bucks county race, Casey got 188 votes, Pennacchio got 176 and Sandals got 4. Pennacchio stole the endorsement from Casey. The same thing happened in Lancaster County too. Casey had a strong lead in the gubernatorial race too, then it collapsed and he lost to Rendell. Casey IS a loser who chokes and cant cut it when the going gets tough. The OpEdNews / Zogby Peoples poll asked 850 voters how theyd vote, matching all the candidates head on, then gave the panelists info on each candidates positions on issues. Casey lost his lead entirely and Pennacchio ended up pulling a higher percentage of votes. Moreover, the African American support for Casey dropped 50%. Rendells choice of Casey, in a year where HE will be running against African American Lynn Swann could cost Rendell the Gubernatorial race, since Blacks may choose to stay home rather that vote for a ticket they are not happy with. Theres a horse-race here. The story is not that the Dems cant get their act together. Its that grassroots dems, and not just a few activists, are not taking the imposition or annointment of a candidate by the DLC centrists. Theyre fighting back and Pennacchio is coming on strong, with almost no money.|
