Denominator used to compute percentages in multiple-response polls is wrong.

When a poll permits a respondent to select multiple responses, the denominator used to compute the percentages shown for each response should be the number of respondents, not the total number of responses, as is currently being done.

See, for example this poll. What percentage of climbers who have responded to the poll use verbal belay commands on multipitch climbs? There is no way to tell from the poll because the percentage shown are the percentage of total responses, not the percentage of respondents. Make sense?

It does. That's probably an easy fix for the code monkeys, thought it'll be back a way in the queue. Thanks Jay.
