44% of Democrats Welcome Refugees from Agrabah, Home of Disney’s Aladdin

Just last week, Democrats in the media were guffawing over a poll which showed 30% of Republican primary voters would bomb the fictional city from Disney’s Aladdin. This week a Republican polling group asked a similar question of Democrats, and the results were even more embarrassing, with 44% of Democrats saying they’d support taking in refugees from Agrabah.

WPA Research asked Democrats “Would you support or oppose allowing refugees from Agrabah to be re-settled in the United States?” In response, 44% of respondents said “yes.” Young Democrats, between 18 and 34, were especially eager to help the mythical refugees, with 66% saying they would support taking them in.

The question of whether or not the U.S. should accept refugees from Syria has been publicly debated for several weeks, especially since the terror attacks in Paris and, more recently, in San Bernardino, California. Republicans tend to oppose taking the refugees, with several Republican governors saying they would fight any effort to settle refugees from the war torn country in their state. So the question about refugees from Agrabah, while not a real place, does track with a real question about refugees that has been in the news.

The battle of the fake polling questions about Agrabah began last week when a writer for Salon.com suggested the bombing question as a way to embarrass Republicans. Left-leaning polling firm Public Policy Polling immediately adopted the idea and broadcast the results Friday morning.

    My God, John!

    Did you even read the article?

    The whole point was – first, 30% of Republican voters were so ill-informed that they were willng to bomb a MYTHICAL city – the Democrats thought that was pretty funny –
    So – another poll was conducted – this time even more Democrats (44% overall and up to 66% in some age groups) were unable to discern they were being duped and said they would be willing to accept refugees from this MYTHICAL city.

    Then along comes someone who ‘reads'(?) all this; still does not realize that this is a sham; and enters a conversation as if this was a serious issue. You must surely be a member of the Communist Party?!

    I choose to assume it just caught you early on a Christmas morning – before you were fully awake and functioning?

    Merry Christmas, hope your day improves from here.

    No we don’t need them here in the US. We have plenty of folks here in the US that are out of work and homeless including our vets why should we be taking in those from other countries?

    What gets me is instead of staying and making their country better they flee to other countries and bring them down. Like the Muslims that come here and want to implement 7th century Sharia laws or the ones for which come here and don’t want to learn the primary language of English. Leave them where they are at.
