    Poll the world and give your opinion on a huge range of subjects, plenty political but including day-to-day personal insights as well

    • More political questions
    • Easy to create and track polls
    • Troll-free comments sections
    • Results broken down by demographics
    • Outdated design

    "Yay or nay?"


    Show of Hands Polls & Politics is a popular, easy-to-use polling app that allows you to pick the brain of many different users around the world at once. Polls show up in a seemingly never-ending feed, prompting your fast feedback on whether or not you talk with your hands, or if you think five-year-olds should be allowed to carry handguns. Check out the results in great detail, broken down by demographics like gender, age, education, religion, and location (note that the audience seems to be heavily US-based). Submit your own polls and track their results.


    This is the most politically oriented polling app I've come across, and it manages to bridge the gap between entertainment and seriously prompts for consideration. The comments section on each question appear by and large to be troll-free - let's keep it that way.


    The design is outdated. If it were a more polished material design, the experience of using the app would overall be much smoother. I can envision a card-swiping yes-no system that would appeal much more to my sense of pleasing UI.

    This app is a lot of fun and many good poll questions, but also a lot of trick questions from left wing political hacks and haters.

    Very unsafe app. There are some users that make hundreds of accounts just to get your personal information. If you email the app admin, you get no reply. On top of that, they will ban you if you try to defend yourself. Definitely not safe for kids. I've written many emails to SOH admin to explain this and I got no respond. I found lots of harassment and abuse. It's basically only a few people on the app and they spend all day posting pointless questions designed to find your location.

    It's a pretty good chat app...kind of reminds me of the good old days when chat rooms were unmoderated, wild, and fun! I've met some great people on here and have broadened my horizons as a result.

    The only decent polling app on the play store, but it should learn from Holy Wars for iOS in its social organization. The app is in serious need of an update. Lots of bugs, clearly outdated, but a nice community and interesting discussions.
