Decent add-on but very basic. Doesn't include a bar graph of votes after you've voted. Doesn't include ability to link poll to thread polls. Doesn't have option for public votes.
Simply beautiful. Another addon from Andy that should be, as many others, included in the core package of Xenforo. Good work Andy!
