Here's a poll on the subject of polls. I read the bar length and tend to always forget about the numbers of the right.

Both - I take in bar length first, then compare percentages and raw numbers. The bars and percentages give me a good big-picture overview while the raw data helps me weigh validity.

Usually I look at the length of the bars first, then the numbers.

I always read them by bar length because I didn't realize that there were percentile numbers till now but now since I know they are there this might change.

When there are only two to four options, I see the length and then the numbers. But when there are too many options then I look at the numbers and then the length.

I read both, but I look at the number before the bar length, so I voted percentile in the poll.

Like most of the other responses, I do look at both but I look at length first

You need to look at both to make an informed conclusion. One without the other is bullshit.

Both. The visual always/often grabs me first, but I always like the numbers too.

Both.
I read the bar length first(since it's nearest to the left), then the numbers. I like to compare the numbers more, though.
