A facebook poll app that keeps visitors on facebook?

Looking to set-up a simple five question poll for my business. I would like the insight but can see by past visits most facebook "friends" will not click a link through to a separate page. I am not personally on facebook so I can't look for a poll I have received in the past to use. It seems so simple yet my five hours of heavy lifting haven't resulted in what am looking for... Thank you in advance! [more inside]

A crowdsourced poll repository?

A political pollster called me last night with three questions and afterward I wondered if there is a site that lets people who receive these calls enter as much information as they can about the questions and the organization asking them. Presumably such a site would be searchable and also yield useful metadata about the types of questions being asked and polling organizations themselves. My google-fu fails me. Do you know of any sites that are to what I describe?

Online survey tool recommendations

Half the blogs I read have links to the Blogads survey today, which reminds me that I've been meaning to do a readership survey for one of my sites. There are a plethora of web sites offering survey tools (if this page from SurveyMonkey, which is doing the Blogads survey, is any indication); which one(s) would you recommend? (Free or very nearly so is preferred, natch.)

Polling vs Electoral Votes

Every day, we are"treated" to new poll numbers showing Kerry and Bush at various percentages (Bush is leading, and seems to be widening that lead, according to most, except on that Wacky electoral-vote.com thing, but whatever...)

What I don't understand is how these percentages correlate with (or do they describe?) Electoral Votes. Does anyone understand how these correlate/connect? Can someone explain?
