Actor George Takei was taking a Twitter poll earlier, but with hours left, he scrapped it because something wasn’t going right:
lol @GeorgeTakei took a poll of who was a bigger enemy to the US – Trump or the press – then had to delete it bc he didn't like the poll.

Funniest thing on twitter in a long time. George Takei takes down his twitter poll when he realizes the results start going the wrong way. pic.twitter.com/FnMikGS0xx

Takei blamed the backfire on “trolls” and others, and then deleted that tweet as well:
Alas, my online poll was hijacked by alt-right, virgin trolls living in their parents' basements. But it did let me ban over 100 of them.

Beam him up!
Just like 2016 opinion polls and the Electoral College:

@GeorgeTakei I am a big fan. Have you gone mad? You made a poll then deleted it when it didn't go your way. Seriously.

If the polling “science” doesn’t go your way, scrap the whole thing!
