No, they don't, but since the more trafficked sites are likely to be more
complete and with a larger community... You can infer that there are more
people for the logo than against it, as demonstrated by which communities
use it and which do not.

If there were specific issues with the new logo that remain unaddressed,
perhaps the best thing to do is design a new logo that may not have those
same problems?

The old logo is owned by the WMF,  but the new logo doesn't appear in the
Wikimedia Images category on the foundation wiki. Who owns the scrabble-like
logo? As a last resort, would the Foundation impose a logo scheme on a
project type where the communities couldn't come to consensus?

Last - should be noted that the wikimediafoundation.org site and the
www.wiktionary.org use the old 'logo' to represent all Wiktionary projects.
