30% of GOP wants to bomb Agrabah

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/The Hill. More here.

Question: If you'd been polled, would you have known that Agrabah is a made-up country?
