New And Improved HuffPollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For March 1

03/28/2008 02:46 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.

You could blow an emotional fuse. Yes, you could throw one of your legendary wobblies. You might have good reason too. However, it's as likely that you'll be generous in the amount of time you're willing to give to listen to someone's strategy. You might even be impressed by their grasp of what now needs to be done.

You probably won't be the only to be accused of being as 'Mad as a March hare' - but in your case it could apply! The art may be to know where you're going and why before you start rushing around. It could be all too easy for you to go off on fool's errands - perhaps because you haven't fully assessed why something has to be renewed, rescued or retrieved. Slowing down might also provide the opportunity to discover why a group of friends are pulling in opposite directions.

It's first of the month, and a few 'mad March hares' could be around. Lack of organisation and the sheer number of things you'd like to see done could result in disappointment when it becomes apparent that others are too easily distracted. Yet a shopping trip - even if it's just reconnaissance could turn out well. Less happy could be a family squabble that could escalate.
