Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For July 22

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 surprise announcement could momentarily knock you off your axis. You could retreat into tackling routine tasks which may be problematic. It's possible though that someone is waiting for an answer. What might dismay you is the level of risk, to which you feel you'll both be exposed. You feel a sense of caution - perhaps you sense that you'll be over-reaching yourselves.

Partnerships could presently be the biggest driving force in your life. A competitive element could creep in however - although you may feel as though you're lacking confidence. It may be that you need to show that you can be more generous than the other person. Driving and travelling seem to be big features too. This might be a fabulous time for taking part in a (bicycle?) race. If not directly involved, your support for a team could be pronounced. They might truly appreciate your shouts of encouragement.
