Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For July 4

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 deadline is perhaps just one stepping stone on a long-term investment plan. Negotiating the last stages could test your nerve! Someone sharing a financial load (and this could be a bank or close partner) might seem to be dawdling. It's just possible that post may have been delivered to the wrong place and that when this is resolved, you'll feel tons better.

There's very real danger that you could be seduced into over-spending! Another possibility is that a deal will finally come good - but involve a few last-minute expenses. Holding your nerve during an 'end game' could test your resolve. You might also need to help prevent a Virgo friend from worrying themselves to a frazzle! Discreetly preparing a mini-celebration for early next week might be on your agenda.
