Would it be really bad to share the survey link and ask a lot of people to manipulate the outcome?
Yes. Not only are you undermining the authority of the admin, but you are encouraging others to do so as well.
Or would it be OK as long as the manipulation was revealed afterwards to show that an open question / poll on the group would be better / more transparent?
No. Far better would be to openly explain the problems inherent in the current system, and suggest a better alternative. Being deceitful and underhanded will not have the effect you are looking for, no matter whether you think
your reasons are justified.
