Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 26

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.

Revenge may be sweet. Yet now you know you could 'get your own back', you might not want to. In a singular act of grace you could let something go. That could have extraordinary physical effect: you might even 'feel taller'. You might also feel you're drawing closer to someone whose ability to see adversity as a 'problem to be over-come' could be something you'd like to emulate.

A friend might suggest your expectations are unrealistic. Preparations for a big event could be unsettling you. Others may think you need 'spoiling' and might even be trying too hard to please you. Your feelings could blow hot then cold - suggesting this might not be the best of days for making a decision. When you do operate on instinct, you could make someone's day by giving them something they know you cherish.

You might need to see evidence of willingness to adapt to your needs. Information coming to light could leave you doubting someone's motives. A Scorpio or Aquarius friends' descriptions of an event could leave you confused as to what really went on. The good news is that you may now see the wood from the trees - making it possible to solve a design or space problem.

Love and affection from those close may not be so obvious just at the moment. You want to feel close to special people, but their minds are elsewhere, so perhaps you feel that there may be a wet blanket sitting on your feelings. But this sense of coolness, and lack of warmth is just temporarily. Don't take it personally. Though it won't be long before you will be definitely out in the swing of things. So just catch up with the chores in the meantime.

Saturn around will put a bit of a backbone into you to make you go off and do your duty and be conscientious and responsible. And if that comes along with feeling a little bit kind of cool and excluded from the nicer things of life, including special people, then that is the way it is for the moment. Communication delays and glitches appear just for a while. Be patient, put your mind to other things, and it will come right.

Maybe someone around is trying to squelch feelings of warmth and tenderness and good fun. Certainly the time is not good for spending money, or for overeating. Aim towards hard work and self-discipline. You have rather uncanny insights at the moment but watch you are not being too mistrustful or suspicious of the motives of others. You may be looking too much on the bleak side of situations and always need to check your hunches out against reality, before acting on them.
