The Toffees have come under fire after it was revealed season ticket holders and club members were asked to assess Allardyce's ability to get the best out of the players.
Despite lifting the club out the relegation mire since his appointment in November, Allardyce is not overwhelming popular with the Goodison Park faithful, who have complained about the style of football under the former England boss.
There are claims the boss could leave in the summer, with the Everton board keen to realise their dreams of a return to European football after a number of big-spending transfer windows.
But Ginola insists Toffees chiefs should take responsibility for the big decisions and should not need to ask for the opinion of supporters.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Tottenham and Newcastle star said: "When you do a survey, normally its to raise a point that youre going to make some changes, but the survey is coming from the club? Thats my concern.
“How can you ask the supporters what they think about the manager and the players? You only have to listen to them every game at home to find out if theyre happy or not.
“Some things happening in football are making me think why are you doing this? How will this help you?
“Will the answer of this survey help them make a decision? They dont need to do that!
“As the chairman you have to take responsibility, you dont normally need to do this to make a decision.
“As a chairman and as the board, you should know exactly what is happening at your club, so why the survey?”
