I recommend you not to use the second method if the first mentioned method is available for your profile because it is not the standard method to conduct opinion polls, in fact it was just a improvised way for conducting opinion polls when there was no standard method available to do so. That’s why, I recommend you to use the inbuilt Polling option of Google Plus for conducting polls as mentioned in the first method.
