    It works fine, but you put it in a Post, not in the sidebar.

    See here please as raincoaster is correct. You have placed the poll in a post and not in a text widget.

    When adding a poll to your sidebar, you may need to update its design to use the Narrow style to ensure that it properly fits.

    Try that. And don’t put the space between the opening bracket and the “p”.

    Your Poll worked fine for me in a test blog when I take the space out “[ poll…” take the space out – the space is not liked at all as @RC noted above

    [polldaddy poll= 5806630]

    Take out the space between the “[” and the “p” – or just paste in the code I have above in a text widget in your sidebar – worked fine in my test blog.

    A poll can show up in one place only. If you want it in your sidebar, remove it from the post.
