The results of a Twitter poll created by the platform’s CEO Elon Musk, shows the majority of users want Musk to step down as CEO.

The billionaire created the poll on Sunday. About 12 hours and 17.5 million responses later, 57.5 percent were all for Musk stepping down as Twitter’s CEO with 42.5% saying they want him to stay.

This is the latest in a series of Twitter polls Musk has created to gage how users feel about certain decisions.

In his Twitter poll prior to this one, Musk asked if the accounts of journalists who he suspended for covering the @ElonJet tracking account, and allegedly doxing, should be reinstated immediately or after seven days later. With over 3.6 million votes, 58.7 percent said immediately, and 41.3 percent said seven days.

He did somewhat stick to his promise, reinstating some of the accounts. He then suspended another journalist’s account not long after. Washington Post Reporter Taylor Lorenz said her account was suspended after she tweeted at Musk asking for a comment on an alleged stalking incident.

This comes a month after Musk’s first headline-capturing Twitter poll regarding Donald Trump. Musk asked if the former president’s account should be reinstated. After receiving over 15 million votes, 51.8 percent said yes, and 48.2 percent said no. The Tesla CEO did stick to the poll and reinstated Trump’s account in this case.

Typically, major restructuring decisions for a big company are not made via Twitter poll, so it is unclear whether or not Musk will actually follow through with the results of his latest poll and step down.
