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.

Finding ways around difficulties is probable though - perhaps thanks to your network and contacts.

You may be feeling a bit reserved today, dear Leo, especially when it comes to issues involving love and romance. Follow your instincts and know that your hesitations are not unfounded. Sometimes it is good to slow down and question the road you are on. Just do not doubt yourself to the point that you become too frustrated to take the next big step forward.

Reclaim control of things that might be holding you back at this time, dear Virgo. You may find that there is an element of restriction to the day that is keeping you from getting where you want to be. Try as best you can to relax and stabilize your emotions. Interaction with people who are older and wiser is likely to shed some important perspectives on things today. Heed the advice of those who have been through similar situations.

In general, your spirit is upbeat, dear Scorpio, freedom loving, and adventuresome. Today, however, you might find that it is a bit more intense and possibly a bit somber, especially when it comes to romantic issues. This approach to matters of the heart isn't exactly your normal style, but you are apt to find that it is appropriate for your situation at this time. Make sure you have the right tools for the job at hand.
