05/30/2008 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

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 swell of goodwill seems likely. Most signs are likely to be in positive and good humour. You could make a career breakthrough that's beyond your wildest dreams. Another possibility is that you grasp the essence of a project and identify someone whose vision is exactly what's needed presently. You might also manage to broker a deal between two people whose behaviour has been a little 'precious' in recent times and who now need to work together if a project is to succeed.

Cupid could throw a few arrows over the next few days, and you might be the one who wants to help charge his bow. Arranging an event of maximum enjoyment could now be high priority. At a slightly different level, your ideas about marketing or advertising could prove most useful. If there's a downside to today, it's that you could easily overspend.

You could fall into super-efficient mode and be at your best when providing back-up operation. With many signs in romantic, holiday or marketing or even fashion mode, your particular eye for detail could be much appreciated. It's likely you'll take particular pleasure in ensuring that a design or setting is exactly right for an event planned for the weekend.

New opportunities to advance your professional standing may arise, dear Leo, as the planets bode well for business and money. Promising new projects may present themselves. Your natural tendency to serve and nurture others should strengthen your professional relationships, and thus morale on the job takes a tangible upswing at this time. Warmth and affection for friends, children, romantic partners, and even casual acquaintances should increase and enhance relations with all.

Restlessness may plague you throughout the day, dear Virgo, as you should be brimming over with physical energy, but may have no outlet for it. You might have to stay in and wait for something important, which could prove frustrating. Put on an exercise video and do aerobics while you're waiting! This is not a good day to start new projects. Limit your social interactions to exercising with others at the gym.

Today your powers of persuasion are at an all-time high, and this is a good day to ask for a raise or promote a new project. Your drive to gain recognition for your accomplishments may necessitate seeking the public eye, so if publicity is what you need, this is the day to go for it. Your observation skills are acute, as is your insight into the feelings of others. This is definitely a good day to seek advancement.
