Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 2

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.

Expect others to be talking at you (and possibly not listening to your replies). Whilst on the one hand, it might seem that they want positive news, it could be that they enjoy debating issues with you and that you're not expected to come up with anything particularly magical. Your role in keeping a particular show on the road is likely to be appreciated however - which should boost your feel-good factor.

Coercing others into following your plans might not be too difficult, if those natural traits of persistence and determination win through. However, it is possible that from someone from another generation is trying to get a message across. They could be right: you may be trying to burn the candle at both ends and in the process, putting a relationship at risk.

Overseeing a cleaning project or looking after a set of keys is possible. You might also get a clearer idea of a deadline. Friends, could be put pulling in two different directions. It could fall to you to remind them that they're supposed to be having a good time. One possibility is that one group is not at all fussy and that another is demanding that a service is provided exactly as was shown in a brochure.

Today is a day to shine, dear Leo, so make sure you are giving it your all. Be sure that you are getting the credit you deserve for all that you do. Try not to fall into a mode of self-pity. Be yourself, and people will naturally follow your lead. Now is an excellent time to make some plans for the future. Stay grounded and on target with your goals. Make sure you are not thrown off course by other people's whims and motivations.

Today is a day of contrasts for you, dear Virgo. Eat chocolate in the morning and go jogging in the afternoon. Sleep in late and go to bed early. It is also a day of grounding. If you can, spend some time at home and make more phone calls than you normally would. Clean your desk and maybe even organize a bookshelf or two. If there is a weird smell in the refrigerator, why not give it a cleaning? Perhaps its time for a new box of baking soda. Take care of your pets.

Today might be somewhat of a difficult day for you, dear Scorpio. Instinctively you will want to escape the situation and explore your freedom, but somehow something is holding you down. Take care of the stack of bills on your desk and deal with the mess in your bedroom. Clearing the physical space around you will help to clear the mental space in your head. You will be footloose and fancy free soon enough.
