In my eyes, a poll is only ever worthwhile when popularity does not get in the way; i.e. when the respective choices have a similar level of recognition, fame and public awareness. Then, we can actually see which band people in a certain community enjoy and treasure the most, rather than merely confirm the really obvious truth that Pink Floyd have more listeners than Procol Harum.

Floyd for sure. Procol Harum had some great individual songs, but Floyd had great albums.
Nothing to say here. Nothing at all. Nothing is easy.

Procol Harum have been support band of Pink Floyd, not vice versa....
Great band, though

while I enjoy music of both,
I think Pink Floyd is more important in terms of influence to music in general, and to other genres (not limited to rock music)

Some good albums early on from Procol with Robin Trower, but except for their excellent live album with the Edmonton Symphony, once Trower had left, so did most of their fire and brimstone. The Pink Floyd catalog buries Procol Harum.

Dark Side is probably my 2nd fave prog album of all time  and is the definition of prog in my books

I think your statement is completely wrong.....

I can't vote because I haven't heard enough Procol Harum, but "In Held Twas in I" is great, and my favourite music I've heard from PH.  My favourite music with Pink Floyd's name attached to it is "Atom Heart Mother" - terrific.
