Back in 2003, when ran a internet primary among the democratic presidential candidates, I used to predict that Dean would win. The night before the results were released, I called the Dean campaign, told them my findings and they tell me they celebrated early. The next day they called me back, awed that my stats predicted the results within one percentage point.

Currently, the same stats I used to predict the internet democratic presidential primary shows Pennacchio far ahead of Casey. We know that this didn't mean Dean won the real primary, but it change the early stages of the race and brought Dean extraordinary media coverage.

I invite you to check the stats I 'm referring to

Here are the stats for Pennacchio 's website:

And here are the stats for casey 's website.

Note that Pennacchio 's website ranking is much higher -- Pennacchio with a three month rank of 804,518 with Casey barely on the map at 2,392,694.

Pennacchio 's reach per million is much higher at .55 to 1.5, with Casey 's best showing at 0.1. This is in spite of the fact that Casey gets far more press coverage than Pennacchio, which should turn into more visits

Then there 's the poll that was run on the super-blog in which Pennacchio beat Casey 57% to 42%.

These facts and data suggest that interest in Casey is weak, that the media are basing their heavier coverage of Casey upon the hype created by the centrist democrats (republicans in democrat clothing, if you ask me) and that Pennacchio, while underfunded, as is to be expected of an underdog grassroots candidate who is refusing PAC money, he does have a strong base, with over 4000 supporters on his mailing list, offices in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Bucks County and a growing list of endorsements from local organizations. .
