This plugin lets a user create and manage single question polls. The poll postings show in the river as do any comments. There are pages to view one's own polls, friend's polls, and sitewide polls (that are set accessible to 'logged-in users' or 'public'). It also includes a widget for displaying one's polls on their profile.

While every effort has been made toward testing, I still consider this to be 'in development'. Of course, that's not to say it isn't useable. I have implemented a version of this for a project I am working on and it appears to be stable.

There's always room for improvement, so feel free to suggest additions, share bug-fixes, or extend and modify.
