Unclear right now if it's a bug or feature. It helps ensure the poll is less biased.

I remember reading a comment on Twitter a while ago that the third option (of four) seemed to regularly have a higher count than the rest, even (or especially?) on nonsense polls.

So, the idea of randomizing them to lower bias makes sense. I'd call it a feature. 😄

Maybe, when finished, the poll could have a way to add that option with a flag and always render them at the bottom of the list.
