Ability to create a poll for voting on topics
Although this can be done by bots, it would be nice if it were a native feature. Seems simple enough (compared to other things they have added) so I hope it can be a feature.

You can do this with bots and reactions.
This is kinda feature creep imo, reactions are 99% good enough
I need this in my life.
Reactions aren't as efficient as polls, polls can you show the percentages too.
Just because you could make it using another feature doesn't mean Discord shouldn't add this.

You have reactions and even bot's for this. So this is useless.
You can do that with reactions.
If it's in a channel where people don't have the ability to add emotes they can only add existing emotes.
There are bots as Simple as Poll Bot to do such polls
Ability to make Polls in the Text Chat.
It gets annoying having to do a strawpoll everytime you want to reach an agreement and a built in poll like how groupme or twitter has would be awesome. If this does get put in custom timers for how long the poll would last, and which roles can vote in the polls would be amazing!
Ya'll should add like a voting poll option. They should be able to vote for one thing only, not like reactions, where you can react multiple times.

I'm waiting for this myself. I've a few Facebook Messenger group chats, and this is the one feature they have stopping me from migrating them to Discord.
I get that I can use reactions and a bot, but that's just super clunky, especially for those not familiar with bot commands and such
Been wanting this for a very long time!

Just use a darn bot.
Having a polling ability which doesn't rely on removable reactions would be awesome. Especially built in. Sure it is feasible to use reactions to tally votes, but you can't always trust your admins to not simply remove a reaction in their favor if it was a vote on something more serious.
or just a strawpoll integration bot thing official like
Reactions can be used for that, and that's more efficient than add a feature like this I think !
I know you can use a bot, but discord could make it fancy. Do it like they have done with twitter polls.
Just use a bot
This is already easily possible. Don't make Discord waste their time making it for you.
Make it on your Discord server if you want it, and use reactions as the responses for players...
