Remove PollDaddy oEmbed support -- PollDaddy no longer supports oEmbed

After some befuddling experiences, I contacted PollDaddy to ask why their oEmbed support was not working, since it's built-in. Polldaddy confirmed for me that they no longer support oEmbed:


Wordpress has polldaddy oEmbed support hard-coded to look for your oEmbed
provider at, but it looks like that page is
currently a 404. This is making bad things happen for lots of people
worldwide using wordpress and trying to embed polldaddy polls. 

If you could look into this, that'd be great. 

Hi Justin,

We've not supported oEmbed for over a year now. If you want to embed a 
Polldaddy poll you will need to use our WordPress plugin, or one of the other
Polldaddy embed methods.
