Under certain circumstances, the top one or two poll choices are obscured in the http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/polls when you "click poll title to view voting results."
If the capsule omits a title, the gray background for the question overlays the top two choices, whether pie or bar graph is selected. You can see a sliver of blue voting bar peek out below the gray background, but the brown choice above that is completely gone and the text for neither of the top two is visible.
If the capsule has a title, on the other hand, more poll results are visible, but the text above the top (brown) bar is usually, but not always missing. I can't determine the conditioning factor for this latter anomaly.
Hey HowardS- could you please provide a screenshot of what you're describing? I'm poking around my own Poll Capsule results, but can't seem to replicate what you're describing.
It appears you are using Internet Explorer 10.
While we have done some work to better support this new version of IE, there may still be some issues specific to this version of the browser.
I am going to do some further testing on a Windows 8 machine to see if I can replicate the issue.
In the meantime you may avoid the problem by using Firefox or Chrome in Windows 8.
Howard. This issue has been addressed and the fix deployed.
I just tested in Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7 and the first result is showing now.

Howard - Another thing you can try when you're using IE10 and something doesn't seem to be displaying correctly on any website, is to try compatibility view. In your address bar you should see an icon that looks like a jagged, torn piece of paper. The icon is not necessarily always displayed, but if it is, click it; it's like using an older version of IE.
Known issue, works OK with Chrome in Win 8. I'd seen the HP warnings about IE10, but everything seemed to be working. I don't know enough to tell when something is browser-related. Now Win 8 itself is a whole other can of worms. I really wish I hadn't downgraded to it from Win 7.

I'd like to be able to use the poll capsule as a rhetorical device. Right now, you "click to see responses" and it opens up a "complete" poll with the results. Is there anyway you could...
