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.

A conversation you have with your parents or other members of your family gives food for thought. There may be a family member who hasn't been feeling well of late. Discussing ideas about how to help them on their road to recovery is possible. Perhaps there's even a welcome home party being organised. There could be measures being taken to alter or redecorate part of the house. Maybe there's a new arrival on its way necessitating these changes.

Your partner could have some exciting news they want to share with you. Talking things over between yourselves is likely to be felt as a healing experience. And if you've had any difficulties communicating with each other lately, you should find the solution to the problem. There could also be talk about taking out a joint loan - could this mean your relationship is moving onto the next level of commitment?

Those starting a new programme at the health club will also feel the benefit. Feeling so much more relaxed about life leads to a very pleasant time with your partner.
