Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 3

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.

Colleagues and close friends may be surprised by today's developments, whereas you might be more sanguine. It's possible that you've seen some of these coming. That said, you might be surprised by technical developments. It could be that a problem that's been around for some time is fading thanks to the efforts of someone born under either Gemini or Capricorn.

scorpioLEO August 4, 1961

You could be pushed too far. You may feel that a close relationship is being abused. It is possible however, that a promise has already been made. You might feel a partnership will be compromised if you don't go ahead with plans. Difficulties with travel arrangements or with someone's appalling timekeeping might require you to be flexible: just at a time when your good nature is already being stretched.

You may feel caught in an electrical storm. This could be of the natural kind, though it is as likely that you will be at the centre of a whirlwind of activity. The people you work with today you may not meet again. Mobile telephone communications and general e-mail activity could be significantly increased. Documentation is likely to require careful attention, but could give you reason to celebrate later.

A good tip for you to remember: be careful about what you say about other people, dear Leo. If you are speaking about someone who is not present to the conversation, act as if they are. What is your motivation for saying the things you want to say? Is it really necessary to speak in such a manner? A negative comment about someone else is going to resonate in the cosmos. People will lose their trust in you.

You may need some time alone today, dear Virgo, to bring yourself back to center. Independence is a key buzzword, so keep it in the back of your head at all times. Make sure you are not becoming a victim of a commitment you made long ago. As the landscape changes, we must also change. Stubborn actions will be extremely detrimental on a day like this. Be honest and grateful for the things you have.

ssues may get a little heavier than you would perhaps like today, dear Scorpio. Your job is to infuse some amusement into the situation. Your powers of adaptability will be put to the test, as other people seem to be completely fixed on their opinions. Be extra conscious of how you use your words as other people, especially superiors or elders, are apt to get offended by careless offhand remarks.
