Make sure you deployed the WebPart from the Manage Farm Features, if you installed it at the Farm level. Once it is deployed to the desired SiteCollection(s), then goto the root Site Collection -> Site Settings -> (Site Collection Administration) Site Collection Features -> Find "SPUserPoll", then click "Activate".

I received a similar response, except mine was more the Column Data Type is not correct. Going through the source and trying to find out where and how he links questions and answers together through the List objects. From what i can tell, its the setup of the Lists that is causing the problems.

SharePoint is notorious for just quitting mid-sentence when there are conflicts and unlike MS-SQL, it does not Roll Back events like a Transaction.
