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.

Getting the balance right (especially since getting it wrong could be costing you money) might prove challenging! It's possible though that someone (probably an Aquarius) thinks you've been beating yourself up for too long. They might enjoy giving you a break.

Today's free and easy 'jazz' style could bring you into contact with people who make things look simple but who are, in fact, experts. And yes, you could be really turned on by someone who manages to cast a spell around you. You're likely to be even more loving and giving than usual - which could result in you willingly doing what you can to help people you'll never even meet.
