Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 30

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.

An important cycle began last October . Your role as part of a group (but not necessarily its leader) may now have developed to the point where you have to decide how much more involved you want or need to be. Elsewhere, preoccupation may be with someone born under either Virgo or Libra who may need your assistance in negotiating a property matter. Whether this is a repair or a purchase, your experiences could prove valuable.

Slowly it may be dawning on you that you need to take a completely different attitude to finances. It may be necessary to put yet another budget into place. This time, the focus of activity could be on having funds ready to explore a relationship or to please someone at a later date. Gift shopping is possible. It's perhaps more likely that you will be in planning mode. Someone from an older generation might require your assistance with an old bicycle or car which they need to decide to repair or replace.

This is the second stop in a 30- month cycle. It might seem to you as though you've 'arrived at another full stop at the end of a sentence'. In other words, perhaps you need to rest. You might also need to listen carefully to what a partner has to say. Their thoughts on the future could differ slightly from yours. Value for money could be a big theme - as could a much-loved toy - which might even be the subject of some dispute.
