I think it might be fun to have a public list of our poll choices. (below each poll would be a checkmark for public/private, defaulted to private)
Helps you get to know a user and might be fun to share with others on here and elsewhere. (social media?)
Each poll answer can be individually chosen to be a public or private vote, changeable at any time. (also 3 quick option states: all public, all private, and a "leave it as a per poll user's choice pub/priv" option)
And also allow us to go back and answer old polls. (does not affect public poll totals, just for personal fun)
On top of that, also have a central place on our profiles to show off our choices. Maybe a way to sort the polls too, like a sort list "common choice" (for polls were you chose the the more popular option, all the way down to your uncommon choices) and "recent poll" (sorted by when GameFAQs last listed the poll) and "recently answered" (sorted by when you answered)
Public? It depends on the user whether they want to show their results or not. This is not a problem. Listed? This is good but i'd not recommend it for PotD as 1000s of users vote on it. It would be difficult to manage a large list of results. Besides that, guests can also vote on PotD. How would they show them in that list? Your suggestion is best for community board polls (to prevent cheating in popular contests) but not for PotD.
