Membership + WP-Polls + Featured Member

I am running the single WP 3.0.3 + BuddyPress 1.2.6.

I have installed WP-Polls 2.60 (GaMerz).

Here's what I am trying to accomplish:

Create a poll with answers populated from the following query (members' usernames with a certain level).
The results of the poll will determine the featured member for the month.

I have written the following in the polls-add.php file of WP-Polls plugin, then try to add a poll with the title "Aprill 2011 Featured Stylist."

I don't add any answers from the form; just hit the add button.

The poll is created and inserted, but the answers are not. I am also attaching images of my results from MySQL.

<br />
//Check to see if this is a stylist or salon poll</p>
<p>			$pos = strpos(trim(strtolower($_POST['pollq_question'])),'stylist');<br />
			$pos2 = strpos(trim(strtolower($_POST['pollq_question'])),'salon');</p>
<p>			if($pos === false or $pos2 === false) {<br />
			 // strings NOT found in question<br />
			 // use the form to get the anwers</p>
<p>				 // Add Poll Answers<br />
					$polla_answers = $_POST['polla_answers'];<br />
					$polla_qid = intval($wpdb->insert_id);<br />
					foreach($polla_answers as $polla_answer) {<br />
						$polla_answer = addslashes(trim($polla_answer));<br />
						$add_poll_answers = $wpdb->query(&quot;INSERT INTO $wpdb->pollsa VALUES (0, $polla_qid, '$polla_answer', 0)&quot;);<br />
						if(!$add_poll_answers) {<br />
							$text .= '<p style=&quot;color: red;&quot;>'.sprintf(__('Error In Adding Poll\'s Answer \'%s\'.', 'wp-polls'), stripslashes($polla_answer)).'</p>';<br />
						}<br />
					}<br />
			}<br />
			else {</p>
<p>				if($pos === false) {<br />
					//stylist poll<br />
					$level = 1;<br />
				}<br />
				else{<br />
					//salon poll<br />
					$level = 4;<br />
				}<br />
			 	 // string found in question<br />
			 	// use the db to get the anwers</p>
<p>				$polla_answers = $wpdb->get_results(&quot;<br />
					SELECT user_nicename<br />
					FROM $wpdb->wp_users  u<br />
					INNER JOIN $wpdb->wp_m_membership_relationships mr<br />
					ON u.id = mr.user_id<br />
					WHERE mr.level_id=$level<br />
					&quot;);</p>
<p>				$polla_qid = intval($wpdb->insert_id);</p>
<p>				foreach($polla_answers as $polla_answer) {</p>
<p>					$polla_answer = addslashes(trim($polla_answer->user_nicename));</p>
<p>					$add_poll_answers = $wpdb->query(&quot;INSERT INTO $wpdb->pollsa VALUES (0, $polla_qid, '$polla_answer', 0)&quot;);</p>
<p>					if(!$add_poll_answers) {</p>
<p>						$text .= '<p style=&quot;color: red;&quot;>'.sprintf(__('Error In Adding Poll\'s Answer \'%s\'.', 'wp-polls'), stripslashes($polla_answer)).'</p>';</p>
<p>					}</p>
<p>				}</p>
<p>			}<br />
