I see two issues with that:
1.) The amount of time to set up a poll that large — with that many categories, links to the videos, etc. — would be...unreasonable.
2.) The way polls are currently set up, everyone can see the current results before they vote. Not only does this ruin the element of mystery, but it can also cause people to vote for the most popular one(s), destroying the element of genuine choice.
It would require restructuring the entire polling system on the site, which means actually hunting down the code, redesigning it, making the changes (which requires the site to be offline), and working out any bugs that arise, which could take anywhere from two weeks to two months. Considering the list of things to do here, and that a site overhaul is currently in the works, a redesigning of the polling system is low on the list of priorities.
