How about adding a new way of handling polls besides 'regular' or 'CW'?
Please give answers that give ideas on how this could be implemented (actually it's design work, but you know what I mean).
EDIT: See this post for more ideas.

I would also like some way of integrating a poll in a question. Many questions are subjective; this does not make them meaningless.
For example, sometimes I'd like to know peoples' opinion on which design is easier to understand/implement (recently for instance on C# interface method hiding). These are valid best-practice questions that don't always have an easy answer. The normal Stack Overflow answer mechanic works OK for that, but it also conflates quality of an answer with the answer itself. So the discussion and voting thereupon are fine, but they don't really solve the problem at hand; being "which of this options should I choose?".
I could imagine something altogether different might be even better, for instance something like the Yes/No/Maybe gadget in Google Wave.
A structured way to share and aggregate opinions would be valuable.
Overlayed on this would be the ability for those of Editing rep or the Questioner to edit the 1-line Edit Box, and for all CW users (100+ rep) to edit the supporting text.
