Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For June 18

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.

A friend's behaviour may be surprising. It might also be exciting. Whereas you've been held back (and possibly even depressed) of late, the fact that someone finds it apparently simple to step out of a rut could turn you on. True, there's no guarantee that you'll like what you see or hear and it is possible that you might need to access crisis management skills. Even so, you might still be pleased that something is at last happening.
