Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 9

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.

Later next week, all could change again. For now, your panic buttons could be pressed, causing you to express rare emotion. Your obvious emotional state could cause others to back away and even to question your stability.
