But this still isn't valid:

from django.db import models

class Poll(models.Model):
	question = models.CharField(max_length=200)
	pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

    def __unicode__(self):
		return self.question



class Choice(models.Model):
    poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll)
    choice = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    votes = models.IntegerField()

    def __unicode__(self):
		return self.choice
