Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 28

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.

Passions could be aroused, as they have been before. It could be that you are confusing a present-day relationship with a much older one. It might be wise to remember that you too have changed.(horoscopes.co.uk)

People born under your sign have a tendency to worry. Today you could be anxious, and even think that you've forgotten something, when you're simply seeing a situation from a new perspective. Contact with someone you used to know really well, or with someone who is an expert in a particular area might be at the heart of this. They may not have set out to confuse you, but the net effect could be that you worry that you've missed something.(horoscopes.co.uk)

There will be a feeling of release today because you're pulling yourself away from old restrictions - maybe difficult relationships or attitudes of mind that have got you stuck. With Jupiter around at the moment if you think positively then what will come back is going to be very helpful. You want to keep your mind on loftier subjects, such as philosophy, politics - anything that looks out at society in a much broader way. (Daily Mail).
