There seem to be many web parts available for on-premise versions of SharePoint but I've not been able to find an easy way of doing them on SharePoint Online.

My idea was to create a list that had a column for responses (radio buttons) and then create an unstyled new item form for that list that could be added to a page in a content editor web part to create the poll.

My issue is that I can't seem to create a version of the list input form that doesn't have the ribbon etc on it.

Does anyone know how to do this or have another approach of adding a poll to a page?

EDIT: After using Google, SharePoint has its own solution, that can be found here:

There are enough scripts available on the net where you can create polls by yourself by using generators. If you're having a bit of knowledge, you should be able to create one by yourself.

You should check out for sure, make sure you'll test 3 - 5 different scripts, this will force you to learn more about the code(-behind) and your personal preferables.

Thanks but I really need something that's internal to sharepoint. I don't want to be supporting 3rd party or bespoke code for this. – Ben Jul 25 '12 at 13:39
Maybe this is what you need?… (Just Googled it) – BenCes Jul 25 '12 at 13:57
That's spot on, if a bit harder to find on the online version. Make a separate answer so I can accept it :D – Ben Jul 25 '12 at 14:08

Use a dataview webpart. Choose the one column, and insert as new form.
