Ability to sort poll by number of answers

Ability to sort poll by number of answers

Short, concise description of the idea
It would be great if there was a way that you could sort a poll based on the number of responses to a question

Full description of the idea
Many users use polls as a means of creating a vote. If there is a larger number of items in the vote, it's difficult to distinguish who the winner or loser is. If the answers to the question could be sorted, then this would help visually find the winner or loser.

For example, add a button (or text link) next to each question (radio, checkbox, dropdown) that allows the user viewing the poll to sort it in order that the poll creator set up, by responses, maybe alphabetical (not sure on that one). Maybe this is only on the poll page, not on an entry page.

Maybe the poll creator has an option to set a question as a vote which will trigger the option to display (maybe not).

I'm not sure if we'd want those settings stored, or just use arguments on the URL, so that it always defaults to the creator's order.
