New And Improved HuffPollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For February 16

03/28/2008 02:45 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

Discussions about your health - and wealth - could take place. It may be that someone who doesn't know you well enough (?!) feels you should manage your time differently. Unbeknown to them, you may have set changes in store already. One of these could involve a different kind of 'commute' and bring you into contact with students or children.

The behavior of someone who's been a part of your life for a little while could be deeply shocking: though at one level you could be greatly amused. You might also enjoy shopping trip - particularly if you are introduced to a product which is clearly will labour saving. Someone who's very active physically could set you a challenge.

You could easily talk yourself into trouble. If you are involved in an interview situation, the art may be to say as little as possible - and to rehearse before-hand what you need to say. Media contact is possible - and could contribute to a shift in perspective. Domestically a little unscheduled upheaval seems more likely than not.
