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.

SCORPIO October 26, 1947
Today's New Moon falls in your pleasure and leisure zone. And yes, this could mark the start of an interesting romantic partnership. It's as likely to affect you in a creative way. In fact, this could be a good day for little speculation. There is a sense in which you could be accused of walking an emotional and resources tightrope - but there again, you could be backing a hunch. Someone born under the sign of Aquarius, could find all this a little hairy.
LEO August 4, 1961
Today's New Moon could coincide with the need to make a new friend. You could attract someone whose domestic life has been complicated to say the least. Conversation could be sparked through joint interest in a kind of food. This could soon be followed by discussion of a more spiritual nature. Music too seems to match play an important role. The point in all this would seem to be that there are already connections and that friendship could quickly grow.
