Ranking bar sizes scaled to convey average rank position (and show number)
It appears that the bar chart in ranking polls conveys a simple spread from 1-x, with equal size steps for each rank, and any ties having equal bar lengths. Would like option to display bar sizes that are scaled to indicate the average rank position so you can tell which answers are very close or landslide winners. Suggest a bar size formula along lines of: (max length)*(number of answers+1)-(avg rank position). Another nice feature would be at least to display the average rank position of each answer/bar rounded to the tenths.
Sorry - formula for bar length should be:
(max length)*(number of ranked answers+1-avg rank position)/(number of ranked answers)
