Poll: Some Voters Support Bombing Aladdin's Homeland

- A recent poll has found that some voters are highly aggressive about foreign interventions- even against fictitious kingdoms from 1990s Disney movies.

Public Policy Polling, a polling firm known for combining serious, conventional political polling with silly, unconventional questions that often grab headlines, released some numbers Friday concerning the 2016 presidential race.

PPP’s poll found that Donald Trump continues to lead the GOP presidential race, with 34 percent nationally, followed by Ted Cruz (18), Marco Rubio (13), Jeb Bush (7) and Ben Carson (6.) Trump’s support has actually grown from the previous edition of the poll.

However, PPP’s poll also found something else: It asked voters if they support bombing Agrabah. 30 percent of Republican primary voters- and 19 percent of Democrats- answered yes, even though Agrabah does not exist, except as the site of the action in the 1992 Disney classic Aladdin.

According to the survey, 41 percent of supporters of Trump said yes to bombing Agrabah, while 9 percent said no.

“It’s a whole new world,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Republicans who support carpet bombing also support bombing magic carpets.”
