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.

Family and property affairs dominate. Form-filling and agreeing to pay a little more in order to meet a deadline is probable. At a quite different level, the respect you receive from someone who now sees you as important, could give you a boost - even if what they have to say makes you more aware of responsibilities. Your entrepreneurial skills could be put to the test also.
