Elon Musk is running a Twitter poll on whether he should reinstate former President Donald Trump to the platform, with early results showing slightly half of participants voting “yes.”
“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” tweeted Musk, mere minutes after posting the poll at 7:47 pm Friday. The Latin phrase means “the voice of the people is the voice of God.” The poll was set to remain open for 24 hours.
With poll time halfway expired early Saturday, more than 9.5 million votes had been cast. Musk’s followers favoring to reinstate Trump held a slight advantage over the anti-Trump crowd, 52.4% to 47.6%.
Three hours earlier, Musk bragged in another tweet: “Trump poll getting ~1M votes/hour!”
