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.

Curbing messy (or even chaotic) tendencies, is likely to be easy: the need to impress being the driving force.

The more you learn, the more perceptive your questions become. You might now be ready to ask awkward questions or to have these asked for you (by a lawyer or other expert). You might also discover another layer to an enthusiasm (though some friends might think you're becoming obsessive). Investing in a hobby or new friendship seems probable.
