I seriously doubt that if this was prompted by a legal issue they would
poll the populace for a majority opinion as a CYA. Instead, they would take
steps to follow the law without resorting to a poll. No "we just did what
the populace wanted" claim would ever cover anything illegal. We had/have
legal counsel to help the Board make exactly those sorts of calls.

now an odd question , to date , just how many people have been found "

That information is never made public, so only past crowns and/or their
advisors could answer the question, and they won't for confidentiality

Remember all, that the poll is to collect feedback on the proposed change
in wording, not whether or not to implement the wording. First it has to be
worked out what to say, and THEN decided whether it will go in at all.
