Multiple choice polls adding up to more than 100%

So I’m here for the poll thingy. I don’t know if this is supposed to happen but this obviously doesn’t add up to 100%.

Given that the same avatars have voted for multiple options, I’d say it’s a multi-choice poll, and as such you wouldn’t expect the options to add up to 100%.

The correct interpretation of those percentages is,

Out of the 5 total people who voted in this poll, 4 of them voted for Burgers. 80%.

Out of the 5 total people who voted in this poll, 4 of them voted for Fried Burgers. 80%.
