Poll Results: 78 Percent Like Mayer’s Move To Yahoo

It’s a small sample size, but the numbers are still impressive: Almost 78 percent of respondents say Yahoo’s hiring of Marissa Mayer as CEO is a good move, and only two percent feel it’s a bad move.

Those are the results of the poll that we ran Monday on Marketing Land in the hours immediately after Mayer’s move to Yahoo became public.

We asked readers to choose between the move being a “good move,” a “bad move,” or to tell us if they’re not sure yet. A whopping 78 percent called it a good move and another 20 percent said they would wait and see, leaving only about two percent of respondents calling it a bad move.

Here are the final results.
