Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For March 22

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.

What might be crystal clear to you, is that a team needs to understand a challenge - and its timescale. Though still wrestling with a career decision yourself, you might enjoy discussions with someone born under Libra or Aquarius who's similarly weighing up possibilities. A long-standing friendship could be put to the test however - and probably because your memory of the past differs from theirs..

If you've recently started a new regime, your resolve could be tested. You might also face a budget challenge, especially when, if shopping, you find what you believe to be the perfect item but which is expensive. A friend born under one of the Air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius could act as an unwitting seductor by intimating that you're missing an opportunity if you don't buy. That said, discovering the power of saying 'no' might not be as difficult as you believe..
