    The phrase "to give a fig" means you don't care about something.
    "polls" are usually surveys made by various groups to assess public opinion.
    For example: News media take polls during elections to predict how the vote will end.

    Example in a sentence: I don't give a fig who wins the next presidential election even though John Everyman is favored in the polls.
