Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 25

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 you're being held to account when a group ought to take responsibility. It may be that someone is unsure about your long term goals and issues an ultimatum. From your perspective it could be that others are being unnecessarily dramatic - which could prompt you to wonder more about their long-term interests and whether you're now involved in a complex emotional blackmail.

You might concede that you've 'pushed the boat out' a little too far. Yet you might also know exactly what you're doing. True, you don't need to be seduced into spending more and might need to give a friend with very expensive tastes a wide berth: even so, you might sense this is the moment to indulge in a little of what you fancy. Paying overdue subscriptions could be on your priority list.

Now that you've hit a turning point you might benefit from reviewing dreams - and day to day arrangements. With people now leaving (end of month coincidence?) or tasks coming to an end, you might also enjoy a conversation with someone who's ready to make an appraisal. Though part of you might not want to know the answer, knowing exactly where you stand financially could be helpful - especially if someone close hasn't kept their eye on this ball.

The planets are aligning to make this a great day for you, dear Leo! You should find that your mood is excellent and that your mind is focused. Romance will thrive in the nice, stabilizing atmosphere, and you should feel free to take center stage. If you have been suffering from any doubts lately, now is the time to take control of the situation and go for it. This is a good day to stand up for yourself and make it known that you are not a pushover, dear Leo. Use the powerful energy of the day to follow through on projects that may have lost momentum. Pick up the reins and take control of the direction of your life. Feel free to be more aggressive than you normally would. Show others your incredible worth.

Try to bring things down to Earth today, dear Virgo. This is a good day for you to consolidate and organize. When it comes to matters of love and romance, try not to be so fickle. You may be giving someone the run around just to test their devotion. This is an important time for you, and you should probably work to ground and solidify instead of keeping things so light and ambiguous.

he general atmosphere of the day may seem too slow and stodgy for your taste, dear Scorpio. Try not to get bogged down in the details. Also, try not to worry too much. You may find that it is difficult to get any enthusiasm out of people today. You might just want to sit back and take it easy. This is a good day to plan and reorganize. Honor your recent achievements and consolidate all that you have worked for.
