The Democrat polling firm, Public Policy Polling (PPP) decided it would be great fun to throw in a trick question in its most recent survey of voter presidential candidate preferences.
Subjects were asked if they would support or oppose bombing Agrabah, a fictional city made up by Disney for the movie Aladdin. The result that PPP wrote up in its press release stated the following:
And 41% of his supporters [Trump] would favor bombing Agrabah to only 9% who are opposed to doing that. Agrabah is the country from Aladdin. Overall 30% of Republican primary voters say they support bombing it to 13% who are opposed. We asked the same question of Democrats, and 36% of them opposed bombing Agrabah to 19% in support.
Seems cut and dry, right? Republicans are dumber than Democrats? At least that’s what one would be lead to believe.
Here’s the full results as given by PP on page 71 of their report.

Why Lookie What We Got Here!
50 % of Somewhat liberal would bomb Agrabah.
A grand total of 74% Liberals would bomb the place, while only 56% conservative would.
Also look at the results for those Not Sure – 63% Somewhat conservative and 58% Very conservative, while 31% very liberal and 39% somewhat liberal were not sure.
Of course liberal outlets are going with the press release statement today and not checking the numbers themselves. (just Google Agrabah if you want to see the usual suspects).
