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.

The more superstitious side of your being may be in overdrive. Prompted possibly by an old photograph or a sharp reminder of an incident from a long time ago, you may feel driven to try to make contact with people who are no longer around. The fascination with anything that's psychic or spiritual could increase. This might also be triggered by words in a novel or an article in a newspaper.
