30% of Republicans want to bomb Agrabah, the fictional city in Disney's 'Aladdin'

Poll: 30% Of GOP Voters Support Bombing Fictional Agrabah.

Nearly one in every three Republican primary voters who responded to a recent poll said they wanted to bomb Agrabah, the fictional city in Disney's 1992 film Aladdin. Democrats polled were slightly less in favor destroying the made-up place.

The company that commissioned the poll, Public Policy Polling, announced the Agrabah result in a tweet on Friday. The fictional location became a trending topic on Twitter shortly thereafter.

The polling firm, which polls mainly for liberal candidates, added on Twitter that it had asked the Agrabah question to Democratic primary voters as well — they were only slightly less in favor of carpet bombing the hometown of Aladdin, Abu, Carpet, Iago, Princess Jasmine and, of course, Genie.

In English: 36% of Democrats polled opposed bombing the fictional region, 19% supported it, versus 30% of Republicans, who supported it, with 13% opposed.

The poll, which surveyed 532 Republican primary voters from Dec. 16 to 17, also asked if Islam should be illegal in the United States (26% said yes), if they supported the policy of Japanese Internment during World
War II (28% yes) and if authorities should shut down mosques (also 28% yes).
