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.

Words written about you today could be extremely important. However, you may never know what was said in a telephone call or put on paper. Your imagination could run riot as a result. You might feel emotionally tender. On a positive note however, you may now be making better use of your time: possibly because you're now taking adequate rest periods. Contact with someone who works in the Arts may be particularly enjoyable.

A sibling or close neighbor could cause you a degree of difficulty. It may be that they're holding you responsible for a document or time limit that really ought to have been addressed some time back. Your own concerns might be more around a romantic matter, which you'd like to get resolved as soon as possible. This collision in your brain could leave you slightly out of sorts and possibly result in an error being made which causes you to stub a toe or trap a finger.

Deciphering a code or sets of plans might take longer than you'd supposed. There may be even more options for you to consider. Someone could be making an offer for something you own which you haven't yet put up for sale. The sense that you are living on shifting sands and that you don't yet have answers to questions raised this weekend could similarly leave you feeling as though decisions should be made but not knowing which to attend to first.

You will find that your brain is extra sharp today and that you have a greater sense of clarity regarding your purpose in life, dear Leo. It could be that your nurturing instinct is quite high, and that you general self-esteem is dependent on how useful you can be to the people around you. It may seem as if you are everyone's parent or watchful older sibling. Give people the advice they need to grow and be wiser.

Many people conduct their lives without really making conscious decisions concerning their actions. People walk around like they are asleep at the wheel. Don't fall into this trap, dear Virgo. This is a good day to dust off your thinking cap and take action. Don't let others make decisions for you. Take control of your own destiny. For you to maintain the balance of things today, it is important that you swing yourself toward the sensitive side of things.

Remember that it is OK to be wrong, dear Scorpio. If you know you have made a mistake, feel free to admit it. Don't let your ego stand in the way of progress. Others will not want to deal with you if you insist that what you are doing is right all the time, when perhaps it isn't. Your mind may be a bit more fragile and sensitive on a day like today, so try to be more sensitive and receptive than usual.
