Monday afternoon, Kim Kardashian West, recently a steady spokesperson (New Album Division) for Kanye West, started two polls. The first: “Which album title do you guys like better?” Options: Swish (recently buried), Waves (the current name for Yeezy's seventh album).

The second: “WAIT new poll. Which album title do you like best?” Options: Swish, Waves and So Help Me God, which was the first title, announced in May 2015. It only lasted two months before Swish became the new name. 

But Kim’s polls, which have a few hours left as of this publication, reveal that nearly 200,000 people wish Kanye had never changed the title in the first place, and that a small majority still likes Swish better than Waves. Here are the numbers as of Feb. 2 at 12:15PM EST:

Who knows whether this means Kanye is actually reconsidering the title—which would by all accounts be a huge win for Wiz Khalifa, the object of a Kanye Twitter explosion/implosion last week. Kim recently told the world that 'Ye would be dropping a new song #everyfriday, and that didn't even come close to happening.
