The polls are conducted by Hacker News. It is still ongoing. The following is a snapshot of the results (generated by this ugly Perl script). The links to the two polls: like and dislike.
What is interesting is that this is so far the only poll I saw on “disliked” languages.

It would be even better if you could add 2nd chart – sorted by “percent favorite”
Note that for the second chart, the error associated with the number of observations should be taken into account. It would be better to follow the kind of rating described here: http://evanmiller.org/how-not-to-sort-by-average-rating.html
With this formula, C++ would likely be higher than Ada and maybe SQL.
Yes, I agree. Thanks. On the other hand, other flaws in the design of the polls will probably contribute more to misinterpretation than variance.
