    With multiple choice, the percentage reflect the number of votes(for each option) versus the number of voters, not the number of votes versus the total number of votes(spread across the all the poll options). Which is why the total percentage exceeds 100%.

    Right now, there have been 41 voters, with 21 votes for option 1. So the % is 51.22% of votes versus the number of voters(21/41 = 51.22%). The same for the % in other poll options.
