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.

Relationships with certain people may not be that good since there are critical influences around which tend to show up flaws. But if you get into a more self-disciplined mode you will create things that are more substantial. With Saturn putting the brakes on your spending you are learning to be better disciplined where money is concerned. You feel that what you have may be at risk. Caution is a good thing but don't always look on the gloomy side.

Not a day to expect huge amounts of support from other people. You may have to work more on your own today. See where you can use the time wisely to achieve more. Focus on narrow tasks that require attention to detail. You don't always get on well at the moment in team situations. You find it tricky to be calm and controlled. You can simmer with resentment and then overstate your case. Try to assert yourself in a steady way.
