In my opinion, that would be wrong, because you would be able to change the question after the answer  has been given!

I agree... would definitely be wrong to be able to change a poll after votes are already coming in

In which case users may change their vote, yes!? 

But,
Maybe add a time limit of a few hours to get the poll options correct, in case Mr. Typo was in play or something...
In a circumstance like that, it would be useful, me thinks!

On other forums I've seen the ability to add or remove poll options, but not change the question itself or the wording of the answers. That would make polls here more user friendly, as well as protect against misuse of the feature.

I voted for "Skip this poll and view results".

If a poll could be edited, all responses would need to be cleared out and start the poll over.

Let's change poll data often.

This forum could use more surrealism.

If it wasn't for bad taste, I wouldn't have no taste at all.

as others have said - adding/removing/changing poll questions could invalidate all the earlier answers so this should only be allowed if nobody had voted.
