WordPress polls are a great way to get an instant opinion from your blog’s visitors. Polls usually requires low engagement from participants, unlike surveys, and helps the blog owner to add an additional level of interactivity to their content. WordPress has a big list of free and premium poll plugins, however, the usual problem for newbies looking for a good WordPress poll plugin is that they’re unsure which one to use.
