Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For July 13

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.

It might seem to you that energy is building - but that it might not be used to help you. Fears could escalate. They're probably not well-founded though. A Sagittarius (or a lawyer, teacher or expert) could come to the rescue. You might also find that you have a 'friend in high places' whom you hadn't realised could pull strings on your behalf.

Apologising might help. You could score points through being more understanding - and being willing to attend an event that you're sure isn't your scene (though it could be). A partnership may have reached an interesting phase: going from friendship to something more. In the working scene, this alliance could be remarked on. It's possible that together are now being seen as the 'A' team.
