Posted: Updated:

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.

A large and heavy book - or a friend from the past who's carrying excess weight - but who is also very knowledgeable might each remind you of the importance of getting facts right. This could lead to you asking searching questions of someone who seems bent on maintaining harmony but whom you sense is papering over a crack. (horoscopes.co.uk)

This could be an excellent bargain-hunting day. You could also rescue a friendship that's blown off course. Both ventures are likely to require getting out and about - and if both take you to old places, then so much the better. True, it's possible that another friend has built a place up to being more than it actually is. Even so, you could have a good time teasing them. (horoscopes.co.uk)

It's probable that you have a lot to say. True, you might need to give directions. You might also be pointing out what could be done with a property or friendship that requires a little repair. By acting as the 'foreign services department', you could also act as guide to someone who's visiting a place for the first time. (horoscopes.co.uk)

New communications equipment may be acquired which makes whatever work you do that much easier to do, dear Leo. You might have some doubts about your ability to make use of it, but don't freak out. With a little concentration, you'll be able to deal with it as well as anyone. You'll find that it will open up new doors for you, both with regard to the compiling of information and staying in contact with both old and new friends. Go to it! (astrology.msn.com)

A long-term friendship could suddenly develop into something more right now, dear Virgo. You could suddenly see this person in a new light, and realize that this is a very attractive human being. It might come as a shock to you, however, and it could take a little time to get used to the idea. Don't push it away for that reason, however. Just approach with caution and see where it takes you. Go with the flow! (astrology.msn.com)

Some enlightening conversations could take place today with a partner, dear Scorpio, possibly romantic, possibly career-related. New methods of operation could come to your attention, possibly involving modern technology that could speed up the process and increase your income. However, bear in mind that some of what you're hearing about may not be feasible for a while, and other ideas may never be practicable. Remember to remain objective and check out all the facts.
