This is worthless, unless you (a) actually make the poll, instead of claiming 
to know its outcome, and  (b) you establish that what people answer when asked 
about the colors red and green implies what they think about the git logo on 
git-scm.com rendered in either color...

If you really want to conduct a poll, though, I think it would be more useful 
if you e.g. asked people to order several logo candidates / variants by 
preference, and/or asked them what "feelings" each logo evokes with them, etc. 
-- i.e. ask them about actual logos, as opposed to asking about something else 
(like colors) and then extrapolating without a scientific basis.
