Hi there.  I'm using the following script to pull back poll daddy polls using the api calls.  However, I need to call the api method GetPollResults to get results from a specific poll.  How would I add that to the script below, then add the php code to a page or sidebar widget to display those results?
polldaddy.php:

A Google search for polldaddy getPollResults turns up a lot of links to online resources.  What code have you tried so far?

however, I still need to somehow just pull back results from polls, not so much for users to vote on.

Hello COwebmaster, I've found a solution for you. It's not the most elegant way but may get you by until another way is found.

If you go to your Polldaddy account you can go to the results section for a given Poll. Once you are in the Results section you'll notice an RSS icon. Right click the RSS icon and choose save link as: now choose somewhere on your computer to save it. By default it will be called something.part. change the .part to .xml and save the file

Next you'll log-in to your WP-Admin section. Go to Tools>Import and choose RSS. Navigate to your file and select it (You might me prompted to install the Import plug-in if you've never used it before). You should see a message after importing that says HAVE FUN!. This part is a little quirky, but it works. You'll have to go to All Posts section and navigate to the very last post in your All Posts section. For some reason every time I tested it it said the Post was from 1970. I changed the date by clicking the Quick Edit button to bring it to the front. You won't see anything in the Post Edit screen, but if you go to your site, you'll see that it has added the poll results to your blog roll.

That's the best I could come up with. The links you provided to the API are for building a plug-in. If you follow the steps they offer you will see that it just builds an APP that will perform as the already existing WP Plug-in. I'm sure there is a way to get the results, but it appears to be a Paid Polldaddy option in the Results Page. Since I don't have a paid account I can't test this option. I hope that helps.
Good luck.
