place variable inside script

I have the following php script.  I want to place the poll daddy id inside the script but not sure how to do that.  for example, the variable is listed as: $poll = bwp_get_poll('123457890');

using <?php echo $poll->id; ?> how do I replace the id in this path http://static.polldaddy.com/p/123457890.js using opening and close php tags

Any ideas?
<?php $gender = (get_user_field ("gender", $user->ID));
	
if ( $gender == "1" ) {
$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457890');

echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/123457890.js\"></script>
<noscript><a href=\"http://polldaddy.com/poll/123457890/\">Do you believe in love at first sight?</a></noscript>";

} else {
$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457891');

echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/123457890.js\"></script>
<noscript><a href=\"http://polldaddy.com/poll/123457891/\">Do you believe in love at first sight?</a></noscript>";

Did you try this:
echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/123457890.js\"></script>
<noscript><a href=\"http://polldaddy.com/poll/poll->id/\">Do you believe in love at first sight?</a></noscript>";

Looking at this...

$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457890');

And the other usages in the question it looks like bwp_get_poll returns an object.  Is that true?  If so, please use var_dump() to print out the returned object.  Use echo "<pre>"; before the dump so it is readable.  Post the output from var_dump() here.

@bartvd, that solution didn't work

@Ray_Paseur, yes, I just want to return the result of that variable inside that url path but not sure where I need to add ?> and <?php in that section of the code.

Please read my request at ID:36583555.  I would like to help you get this right.  I need to see what the object contains.

sorry, I'm not understanding.  I placed this line of code there but the whole page broke.

echo"var_dump()"

Should be

echo var_dump();

Okay, I tried that but it's not working.  What am I doing wrong?
<?php $gender = (get_user_field ("gender", $user->ID));
	
if ( $gender == "1" ) {
$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457890');

echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/123457890.js\"></script>

}

echo var_dump();

Change line 16 to this:

echo "<pre>";
var_dump($poll);

You can learn how any PHP function works by looking it up on the PHP web site.  Check the link here:

okay, cool that worked :)  This is the output:
object(stdClass)#203 (7) {

  ["folderID"]=>

  string(8) "15589466"

  ["content"]=>

  string(44) "Do you believe in love at first sight? (Men)"

  ["id"]=>

  string(7) "5515751"

  ["created"]=>

  string(19) "2011-09-19 15:35:25"

  ["responses"]=>

  int(0)

  ["owner"]=>

  int(1)

  ["closed"]=>

  int(0)

Here is the object, tidied up a little bit so we can read it more easily.
["folderID"]  => "15589466"
["content"]   => "Do you believe in love at first sight? (Men)"
["id"]        => "5515751"
["created"]   => "2011-09-19 15:35:25"
["responses"] => 0
["owner"]     => 1
["closed"]    => 0

Here is how I would probably go about using the object.  Follow the variable $id in the script below.  I am not sure whether you want that variable in the JS link or not.
if ( $gender == "1" ) {
$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457890');
$id   = $poll->id;

echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/$id.js\"></script>
<noscript><a href=\"http://polldaddy.com/poll/$id/\">Do you believe in love at first sight?</a></noscript>";

} else {
$poll = bwp_get_poll('123457891');
$id   = $poll->id;

echo"<script type=\"text/javascript\" charset=\"utf-8\" src=\"http://static.polldaddy.com/p/$id.js\"></script>
<noscript><a href=\"http://polldaddy.com/poll/$id/\">Do you believe in love at first sight?</a></noscript>";

okay, do I need to also include the following in the page?

["folderID"]  => "15589466"
["content"]   => "Do you believe in love at first sight? (Men)"
["id"]        => "5515751"
["created"]   => "2011-09-19 15:35:25"
["responses"] => 0
["owner"]     => 1
["closed"]    => 0

Ray PaseurCommented:
No, that's just information that I needed to see what the contents of the object looked like.  I might have been able to guess, but it was easier and more reliable to see it printed out with var_dump.

Do you understand what we are doing with the $id variable?
