Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 8

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.
