What is a widget?
A widget can help you save time when placing new polls on your website. In your Polldaddy account, you can create a widget and assign a poll to it. Once you insert your widget code into the HTML of your web page, you can change the poll assigned to your widget with the click of a button, from your Polldaddy.com dashboard.
