Even poor Aladdin isn’t safe from the bomb-hungry Republicans—a new poll released today by Public Policy Polling states that 30 percent of Republicans said they would support bombing Agrabah. A fictional city. In a children’s movie.
30% of Republican primary voters nationally say they support bombing Agrabah. Agrabah is the country from Aladdin. #NotTheOnion— PublicPolicyPolling (@ppppolls) December 18, 2015
This is so ridiculous that the Public Policy Polling had to explicitly state they were “#NotTheOnion” in the tweet with the information.
13 percent of Republicans opposed bombing it, while 57 percent were not sure. Let’s hope “not sure” translates to “we can’t because it doesn’t exist.”
However, it wasn’t only Republicans who were fooled. 19 percent of Democrats said they would support bombing, while 36 percent said they would oppose it. It seems everyone, regardless of political affiliation, needs a solid geography course.
The internet reacted hilariously, as it usually does, to this information:
We need to reach out to the moderates in #Agrabah. Only by arming those moderates can we overthrow the country's radical Islamic regime— Jack Kringle (@RepJackKimble) December 18, 2015
