Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For May 17

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.

Pluto has been slowly passing through a key financial sector for years. It's likely that you're near the end of a long, complicated and drawn-out saga. What you hear today could energise you for the last few steps. Your involvement in a large, group project could take shape. It's even possible that you might be required to dress for a special role!

In the quest to win someone over, you could spend more time than usual thinking about where to eat. Someone wearing an item that reminds you of the sea or of fish is likely to tease you - but might also come up with a helpful suggestion. Your patience could be sorely stretched though. Irritation with someone who talks, walks or drives too fast could lead to an altercation.

Someone born, most likely, in the first few days of March, June or December may be teasing you. Some might argue that they're leading you on a merry dance. This might not be wholly unpleasant - though a recurrent property issues (and renovation) might require more decision-making than you feel able to do presently. Leo or Aquarius friends could provide excellent support.

Your financial affairs could look especially rosy at this time, dear Leo. Some benefits are definitely coming your way, though everything is not quite as promising as it seems and you could well find yourself with less than you were hoping for. Think of whatever gain may be coming as something extra, but don't count on it. This way, whatever comes your way will be a more of a welcome bonus rather than an irritating disappointment.

ou should be happier than usual with what you see in your mirror, dear Virgo, because your inner beauty is more visible than usual on your face. You could also be feeling especially sociable, and both old and new friends should find your company especially congenial. Romance blossoms, though there is a slight tendency today to see partners through rose-colored glasses. Hang on to your common sense, but not too much. Days like this don't come around that often!

A female friend whom you haven't seen for a while could surprise you with a phone call or short visit. A lot of interesting news and useful information could be exchanged, benefiting both of you. You may make a number of short journeys throughout the day, dear Scorpio, as you have a lot that needs to be done. A small increase in income could also be in the works. In the evening: Rent a romantic movie.
