Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 4

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.

In defending your corner, you could come up against someone born under Aquarius who's still convinced that you withheld information earlier this week. You could be taken by surprise by news from someone living a long distance away whose commitment to a scheme now seems to depend on your involvement. They might need you to persuade someone else to arrange a letter of authority. Working within rules and regulations could pose a temporary difficulty!

Perhaps you need to be surrounded by a blaze of colour or may be you need time with someone born under the sign of Gemini whose ability to throw ideas your way never ceases to amaze. At a slightly different level, perhaps you need to dance off excess energy. You might even decide that you're willing to spend a considerable amount of time finding exactly the right shoes this weekend. A further blast from the past seems likely. Once again you may be reminded of an incident you've chosen to push to the back of your mind but which is still a significant factor in the way you are now.

You could blow a fuse and ask others to bring to a halt the constant options they keep presenting you with. A professional who's been in business for a long, long time, could give you just the support you need. You might also discover that a potential neighbour has valuable information. A sibling or travelling companion's news about an adventure they are now planning could provide perfect displacement-thinking activity!
