    Poll: 30 percent of Republicans want to bomb country from ‘Aladdin’
    By Bradford Richardson

    Thirty percent of Republican primary voters say the national security threat posed by the nation of Agrabah demands U.S. military intervention, according to a new poll released on Thursday.

    Public Policy Polling, a left-leaning firm, also found that supporters of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump were more likely to favor bombing the made-up Arabian nation from the 1992 animated film "Aladdin."
    Trump won 45 percent support among those who advocated the bombing of Agrabah, compared to just 22 percent support from those who opposed it.

    Thirteen percent of Republicans said they opposed bombing the country.

    A plurality of Democrats, 36 percent, also opposed the measure, compared to 19 percent who said they support it.

    Several GOP presidential candidates have been calling for aggressive military campaigns against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

    A favorite campaign line of Trump's is that he would "bomb the ****" out of ISIS, whle Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has spoken of making the sand "glow" with a bombing campaign.

    OP is too dumb to even do a proper link and just sprays copypasta everywhere so the mystery isn't really that deep.

    What is more embarassing?

    30% in favor plus 13% against = 43% thinking Agrabah is real

    or

    19% in favor plus 39% against = 58% thinking Agrabah is real

    :eek:

    I'm confused. The article didn't make it clear whether Agrabah is a real place or not.

    All they know is it is the land of the Hadjis on Flying Carpets which is enough to turn it all into a glass parking lot.

    Agrabah is based on Baghdad. Basically they are polling how likely Americans are willing to bomb a random place that they think is muslim.

    LOL. This was such a fail, airball, swing-and-a-miss by whatever idiot compiled this r****ded gotcha question.

    So 6 out of 10 Dems are "ignorant" compared to 4 out of 10 Republicans....and (Duh) Republican's are slightly more likely to want to bomb a Muslim Sounding city than Democrats (3 out of 10 Republicans compared to 2 out of 10 Democrats).

    I posted this in the second thread made aswell

    3 things with that story

    1. clickbait title to attack republicans on intelligence when the real numbers show that more dems got fooled

    2. 19% dems support bombing too, and 36% support not bombing... that means 45% of dems were not thrown by a trick question and (100-30-13)57% of republicans were not thrown by a trick question

    3. Knowing whether Agrabah is a real town is good sign of intelligence...
