Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 15

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.

Just how important your relationship with someone born under another of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo or Aquarius) could be brought home to you in a big, big way. It may be that this opens up Pandora's box when your thoughts are exposed. Your value as a key member of a team that's fought long and hard to honour commitments might also be made public - which IS something you could enjoy.

It might seem that someone close is more tuned in to the universe than you. That may be because they're dealing with powerful emotions. All this though could cause you to think about the after-life, your ancestors and even your own legacy. It might also heighten your awareness of other people's gifts and talents. Watching someone rehearse or perform is likely.

Someone close could blow you away with an idea that's radical and amazing. In processing this you might find your feet hurt. That might sound like a weird reaction - but it's a likely one of events are as dramatic as the cosmos seems to suggest. Whilst tuned in to an unusual frequency, you might be ready to listen to someone who's felt for ages that your energies weren't being put to best use.

Your slow and steady approach may need a sharp kick in the pants today, dear Leo. Don't hold back your opinions. This is a time to get it all out on to the table, despite the tension that this may cause. Strong forces are at work, so don't be surprised if things get a bit more heated than you are used to. The fact is that incredible breakthroughs can be made through the disagreement among different types of people.

Try to seek freedom and new experiences today, dear Virgo. This is an important time for you to spread your wings and explore. Keep in mind that emotionally, something or someone may be working to hold you back. An opposing force is promoting war while you insist on keeping things peaceful. Perhaps there is an important lesson that you need to learn. Be more assertive in your actions, and don't let people walk all over you.

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.
