Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 19

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.

Thanks to efforts behind the scenes a little financial progress is possible. Dates for meetings next week could be changed however - which might tempt you to be stern with someone younger. It's possible that they're not messing you around though, - and that until closer to the end of the month, no more can be said. Meanwhile, your relationship with a Libra might require extra attention.

You could feel that someone's dragging you back - insisting that you go over and over the terms of your relationship. Another possibility is that in juggling finances, you experience moments of doubt about your financial position. At a different level entirely, a Fire sign friend (probably a Leo) could irritate you by trying to hurry you when really you need time to absorb ambience as well as fact.

Matters involving creativity, romance, and children could require some considerable thought today, dear Leo. Some exciting new options may be available to you and your loved ones, and you might be inclined to mull over the possibilities. You might consult others to get a second opinion. For the most part, you'll want to decide on your own what's best at this time. In the meantime, you could keep yourself occupied by working on ongoing projects.
