I would not focus on the shortcoming of the opposing poll, but rather point out the strong points on the poll that I sided with. That’s what I think would be the best way of handling it. 2.

I would allow the person the chance to turn themselves in and make the professor aware that they plagiarized. This way, the person would have to opportunity to turn themselves in on their own accord. If the person did not let the instructor know about the violation, I would have to tell the instructor myself.

Even if the article is not available for anyone else to read, what if the author of the article was sitting in the audience?...
