Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 11

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.

What's going on within your inner core could be so, so important. Your spiritual side may have been awakened. Learning more about a code of behaviour - or even undertaking a retreat or meditation, is likely to both re-energise you and give you a clear idea of goals. The person with greatest influence over you today is probably someone who lived a long time ago.

Not only does it appear that you need to 'come out to play', it also seems you'll be in the mood for tradition: acknowledging the past could be important. Anticipation of a forth-coming event is likely to build and might even cause a 'tears before bed-time' moment if you get too hyped up. That might be unavoidable though - especially when someone from the past makes unexpected contact.

Though these might still be early days, you could be in celebratory mood. Your mind could also be turning to design - and how you can revitalise something old. The bargain-hunter within you is likely to be inspired by a newspaper article about a style that's traditional but from a culture about which you, as yet, know little. Fascination with old, religious artefacts seems likely too.

Act on your instincts today, dear Leo, and you will not go wrong. You may need to give up a bit of control and put logical thinking aside for the day. Let the wind take you where it wants you to go. Explore your mind and its interaction with others. You will find that it will be just about impossible to solidify any plans. You are better off exploring options and comparing notes with others. Don't pigeonhole yourself into only one way of thinking.

You will find today that you are the missing puzzle piece that people need in every situation, dear Virgo. Engage in light conversation in social arenas and feel free to turn your charm dial up to turbo. You have the ability to make favorable impressions on just about everyone today, so make sure you set the day off on the right foot. Get out of bed earlier than normal and get your blood pumping with a brisk walk around the neighborhood.

You should be able to evaluate your emotions from a very neutral and detached perspective today, dear Scorpio. Use this opportunity to take action based on what you feel. Make sure that your actions aren't reactionary and that you are not simply acting rash in response to someone else's hasty maneuvers. Think before you make any sudden moves. You will be amazed at what incredible things can develop if you simply use your head a bit first.
