I'd recommend to have more choices, the "standard" in polls is usually five,
arranged something like:

Strongly agree    [ ]
Agree             [ ]
Indifferent       [ ]
Disagree          [ ]
Strongly disagree [ ]

That way, people can express their opinion with better precision, and you
have more data to work with. Instead of a simple "Votes for vs. votes
against", which is about the best you can get with your current data, you
have e.g. a measure which describes where people in general stand on the
issue (e.g. average or median), and another measure which describes how much
they agree with each other (e.g. standard deviation).

Happy polling! ;-)
