Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For March 27

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.

Sparks are likely to be lit in your creative department. You could write a play, act in one or play happily with those who're happy to forget their age. You might also act as go-between with two potential lovers. Interest in other people's life gambles is likely to be high: to the point where you're ready to make enquiries. Knowing who's up to what could help you decide what move to make next.

The past and the recesses of other peoples' minds is likely to hold fascination. Your spiritual self may be thirsty for information. Through the sibling of a close friend, you could learn more about a particular code of behaviour. You might also decide to order a book on this over the Internet. A piece of unusual jewellery could cause you to think about symbolism generally.
