That's just UX design 101, innit. Checkboxes are for multiselect, radio buttons for single. Don't confuse your users with unfamiliar use cases!

I imagine the average user isn't looking at the checkboxes of polls in order to determine whether they're allowed to pick multiple things. That's the kind of subtle thing an uninformed user will likely glance over, IMO; they'll use the poll question and choices for that.

Not that I'm against changing it, because I see where you're coming from, but I feel like your post blows this out of proportion.
