Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 7

Posted: Updated:

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.

It won't be surprising if you feel a little leaden or if those who care about you deeply don't caution you to take things easy: you may well have pushed yourself physically and need now to stop, take stock, and tune in to a different wavelength. An Aquarius friend - with perhaps less tact that you'd wish, could point out that your work-play balance has gone awry. A conversation in a kitchen could give you much to think about.

True, someone could throw a guilt-trip and you could feel you've been put in a tight corner. A large part of you might be more than willing to help out someone in distress. What you might resist is being coerced and pushed around. Tension in a relationship is likely to come through your different obligations and responsibilities. Over the next 24 hours, the issue of give and take - and how much - could crop up again and again.

Tough talking seems likely and could be related to a property issue - or the size of a responsibility burden. Older people could play a helpful role - though travel to visit them could be more challenging than you'd anticipated. You might benefit from being in clean air. Indeed it's possible that poor air quality is putting your system under pressure, making clear thinking even harder to achieve.

You may have found yourself having some issues with food lately, dear Leo. It could be that your sense of self worth is not at its highest, and that you are trying to make up for this by sabotaging your relationship to your body. Remember that food is healthy nourishment that you need to survive. Your body deserves respect, and you need to always give it the proper fuel that it needs to be healthy.

Give your loved ones the attention they need today, dear Scorpio. Don't let another day go by without telling them that you love them. Life is short, and getting shorter with each passing day. Feel free to be confrontational about a serious issue that needs to be addressed. You are responsible for your own feelings. Do not play the role of the victim. You will only experience more pain and resentment later on.
