Polling Software?

Is there an easy (easy-to-install, easy-to-use) software that would allow me to run polls on my site? Something that works well with Movable Type?

This is the only thing I see:


But it doesn't look quite finished. Can't we just clap?

No: clapping sounds too primitive.

This MT plugin sounds promising, but I don't like the "in development" aspect (of course, I understand that every plugin must go through this phase, but I'm too ignorant to deal with something that hasn't been thoroughly tested).

Ads?! What do you think I'm running here: an online university?
Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'll wait until the MT-specific plugin is ready. I don't want to mess around with something that MT doesn't like.

George Mason's Center for History and New Media has this. Can't say whether or not it works with MT.

Adjunct Spouse, that looks like a real possibility. The only problem: there is no real information as to how it works (eg, does it keep track of IP addresses so that people can only vote once?). But I think it will work with MT.
