I have seen other tsr threads and polls like this but i wanted to find out the current thoughts of Cambridge applicants. Since there are only 16 in a poll, I have picked out my favourites.
If you picked one not in the poll, say in the comments

Ignore polls.....
Almost everyone at Cambridge loves their college and think theirs is the best. If there was only 16 colleges on the poll, it's very likely members of TSR who happened to vote in it went to one of those 16 colleges....
there're more than 12,000 undergraduates Cambridge. It's not too difficult to realise the polls like is not be trusted anyway.
And poll itself is meaningless because of the reason above

Choosing a college is the least important thing in application to Cambridge.

Ok thank you, I will read it. I was just wondering what people thought because all the colleges look so nice. I agree that everyone that goes does seem to love their college

Yep!
If someone says very nice thing about a college, its extremely likely they are/were at the college.

Seriously, don't worry about a choice of college. There's 20-25% chance you get an offer from a college you didn't apply to because of their moderation system in admission process, called pooling.
And even those who were pooled to other college love the college they ended up at, some even say they're so glad being pooled.

The most important thing is to make sure you're good enough to be offered a place, and that's what you should spend your time and mind on. Not on trying to choose a college.

Aside from vincrows points about not worrying about your college, this poll will be skewed by numerous factors, not least the relative sizes of the colleges (oh and half of them are missing...)

Try this instead:

A much better way of picking a college.
