Apparently People Are in Favor of Bombing the Setting of Aladdin

A new poll released today by PPP shows that roughly a third of Republican primary voters are in favor of bombing Agrabah. Agrabah, of course, is the fictional land that serves as the setting of Disney's 1992 movie Aladdin.

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.

In addition to wanting to bomb fictional lands, the poll also showed that voters support Donald Trump and Ted Cruz to win the GOP nomination.

Naturally, people had a bit of fun with this poll on Twitter:

It's very important to be an informed voter.
