Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For March 31

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.

Exasperation with someone who's young but impetuous could cause steam to come from your ears. Whilst you seem focused on safe-guards, a partner could be focused on striking a deal. You might need to remind them that more haste equals less speed. On the telephone or by email you might also alert someone to facts they'll need to have at their disposal for a meeting on Thursday.

It's probably going to take a few days yet before a relationship settles down into knowing which one of you will carry which responsibilities (chores). Meanwhile, others could be asking questions - and receiving mixed responses. It may be necessary to sit down and work out lines of demarcation. One task that seems likely to fall to you is making arrangements for a celebration on Thursday or Friday.
