Here they list 40+ Online Poll sites, which vary in terms of those that you have to visit the site to take or participate in a poll, or those that can be embedded in your website, so that visitors will (hopefully) not leave your site in order to participate.
I have shortlisted a few here that are useful for bloggers wishing to embed a poll in their site (other than using the standard Google tool available with Blogger):
- FreePollKit – Lets you insert HTML snippet polls into your existing site.
- FreeWebsitePolls – Polls for websites or blogs with up to 20 choices.
- PollDaddy – Allows users to create polls and use them on their websites, blogs or even share by e-mail.
- PulsePoll – Lets you create a poll with and grab some script to paste in your site.
- SurveyPopups – Embed on your site and see what your visitors are thinking.
For those that have their own hosted WordPress blog, you can use the following:
- PoWPoll – AJAX-powered poll plugin for WordPress.
- WP-Polls – Adds an AJAX poll system to your WordPress blog. You can also easily add a poll into your WordPress’s blog post/page.
- Democracy Widget – A sidebar widget (note: only allows one poll to be active at a time).
Note: There is a poll within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Oh How much I wanted this !!
Thank you very much Steph. I owe you so much for helping in these small things for which I never get time.
Will explore these sites in a few days.
Once I had an opinion poll on my blog. It was so lousy, ppl preferred to vote thru comment section !
In fact when David started that polling thing, wanted to ask him which one he was using. BTW, do you have any idea which one he is using ?
Now, don’t hit me. Ouch !

Cuckoo… I hope that you are able to successfully implement one of these.
If you use blogger, then the blogger information on adding a poll can be found at this link! Good luck!
