Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 19

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.

A relationship that's already stood the test of time - and which is conducted over vast distances may be preoccupying you. Choosing a time to make contact again (soon) could be taxing your brain cells. Possibly prompted by an article in the papers, you might be tempted to review long-term financial considerations: a long-term friend's interests might need to be taken into account.

This could be the time to appraise a relationship that's existed more in your imagination than in reality. Feeding this longing - which might even be a form of addiction, could be distracting you from a partnership that's fast developing and which now needs extra care. It's possible too that someone very close is negotiating a change in their life - and needs your understanding.

Space is likely to be a big issue. In a property deal, this could be a theme. Another possibility is that you need the fix of experiencing a wide vista. A walk in the country might help. At another level you may need to be with someone who thinks grandly or who focuses always on the bigger picture - and who leaves the minutia to you.

This is a good day to be self-protective and retreat into a private place, preferably at home. So much the better, if you can manage to take the day off, put your feet up and wrap yourself around a warm teddy bear. But even if you are at work, you need some kind of protective niche where you are pushing away awkward people, hassles and hustle. Lazy, indulgent and good humoured, you won't really want to stray too far from home for a while.

You don't stop, reflect or come to any conclusions at the moment. Whereas if you could stand back and be a bit more sensible about one or two things, it really would help enormously. You want excitement, stimulation and a bit of a challenge to hold your interest. Expect the unexpected and you will not be disappointed. If there is a whiff of jealousy or control in the air you will be off, since you have no intention of treading anyone else's line.

Try not to get hypersensitive or over react to other people's comments. Sometimes you can just get yourself worked up about things that are not as important as you're making them out to be. Try to give yourself some space to just wind down and be a bit more at peace if you possibly can. Getting out of bed more difficult than usual since your lazy steak will be more obvious than usual. But if you are normally too active, will be no bad thing.
