Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 4

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.

On the up-side, a vivid imagination could result in it being easy to choose a design or fashion style - provided the price is right. Money matters (large) seem to be the other big theme - and could be related to the purchase of large items (property?).
