    Problem confirmed. I think you may have found a bug in the importer. I am investigating.

    I don't think that one is of primary importance.....heck, we probably have polls asking if folks are gonna vote for GW or Kerry.....

    I found the bug. It's difficult to fix after-the-fact, and since it's not important to you...

    It appears that imported poll votes all got shifted by one option. So a poll like this:

    option A = 3 votes
    option B = 4 votes
    option C = 2 votes

    Is imported like this:

    option A = 7 votes
    option B = 2 votes
    option C = 0 votes

    The first two option votes are combined into one, and all others move up one.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, it's not important - we have had very few polls over the years and they turn over quick...

    At least you can save the notes for the next guys - if there ever is one!
