I'm looking for people that post specialized/niche poll questions regularly (as opposed to the "whatever comes to mind" approach that most of us take). Do you, or does anyone you follow, stick to a single subject with your polls?

I was going to post totally music related questions, but I drifted away from it. I'd love to be all music though. If you need a music person, I total volunteer!

I almost always (98% of the time) post only questions about 'Nerd culture' and pop trends and the like.

I personally stick to video gaming topics. I admittedly don't post enough though. I'm sure if I had more followers I would post more often...hint hint ;)

I started off as a specialist focusing on work out of the day and fitness polls. But I found that the conversations were a bit lacking so I branched out. Now I try to find questions that net as close to 50/50 as I can manage.

Well, there's SpeakerAFly's Virtual Congress. Naturally, the bills cover a wide range of topics, but everything revolves around the same idea of submitting and passing legislation.

I suspect you're not thinking "Um" for the same reason, though, so this probably isn't an agreement (although it'll probably happen sometime!). It's the particular user I'm contemplating. I don't know why the heck I'd care about gay cruises...

Yep. I didn't grow up with it, or I was sheltered by it (either way, I never noticed) - but as soon as it came into my view I was like 'what's the BFD?' And 'Tell me more about You, and HIM/HER!'.
