Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For July 9

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.

Curious developments are likely and may be linked to news from friends born under Leo and Aquarius who've been beavering away on your behalf. Design, or legal issues connected with a document could be at the heart of this. You might also need to question someone born under Libra very carefully. It may be that they are presenting you with options, but creating a further dilemma for you to deal with before the weekend. The good news is that this entire process could come to an end in the next few days and that attention to detail now should pay off.

It is said that those of your sign enjoy and even attract drama. It's possible that you could find yourself at the centre of one now. An over-reaction to events is possible. It could be that your routine has been disturbed and that this is unacceptable. You might also prefer to have more time to spend on a love interest and resent greatly any intrusion. You might also determine that you have little to lose by making clear your feelings.
