Poll %'s on SDMB Polls

I confess I am a mathmatical idiot,but how come the poll %'s don’t equal 100% in accordance to votes cast?

Some of us only provide partial votes.

Uhh…are you whooshing me? Cause that doesn’t help.

No, you “are you whooshing me?” Really, are you? If not, have you got a ferinstance?

Those add up to over 120%

That poll allows for multiple choices, so 43% of all responders chose the first option but they could also have chosen another one as well.

Wel shoot,I swear that was my 1st thought but did not notice it was a multiple choice poll.Ok,thanks.
