Punxsutawney Phil is correct only 39% of the time, but Staten Island Chuck is correct 80% of the time

Compare Phil’s accuracy with Chuck’s. Phil is right less than half the time! may as well flip a coin. If the handlers at the Staten Island zoo are to be trusted, it seems that tourists nationwide should flock to Staten Island, and not Punxsutawney, to ogle at a prognosticating groundhog.
