Polls on the Hot list are chosen by an algorithm that mere users (or even beta testers) don’t know, at least not completely.
The Tap list, as others said, has *all* the polls - at least all the currently *open* polls, with the exception of polls made by anyone you have on ignore, or who has you on ignore.
The Tap is much newer than the Hot list. When user-made polls were a new feature (they started on 3/28/13) the only way to see user polls was to follow other users (their open polls are your New and All lists), or look at a user’s poll list through their profile.
Tony (you remember Tony? - you’ve been here since before there were user polls, so you must) found a number of ways to help users get more followers. One is the Recommended list on the People page. One is “featured” user polls on the main SOH poll list. There were some others that don’t exist any more, some having been abandoned by the new regime.
And then there was - still is - the hot list.
