MS Access Database or Infopath Results

The company I work for shares data via documents and spreadsheets mainly in Sharepoint.  I've never used Infopath but just looked at it.  It looks like a pretty slick form developer.  

I'm trying to do an opinion poll and publish the results, but possibly not the original form which might be solely controlled by me.

Would it be better to do this in Access or Infopath?

Assistance in figuring out the best approach here is greatly appreciated.

Microsoft has announced in January that InfoPath is discontinued. It works as is, of course, but I would look at other solutions.

For example, if you run Sharepoint 2013 and Access 2013, Access web apps would be a viable route:

That's a pity. The combo of Access 2013 and Office 365 is quite powerful.

I gave up completely on programming for Sharepoint 2010. It represents a very steep learning curve, which is the major reason Microsoft left it and introduced Web Apps of which Access can be a share.

I can't comment on Infopath as I've never used it.
