"Would you support or oppose bombing Agrabah?” the survey asked.
Fifty-seven percent of the 532 Republican responders said they were not sure. 30 percent said they supported bombing it. Thirteen percent opposed it.
Public Policy Polling asked Democrats the same questions. Nineteen percent of those polled said they would support bombing Agrabah, and 36 percent said they would oppose it.
"We asked the question of all voters. We're not just trying to expose Republicans. You can see the results for Republicans and Dems together," Jim Williams, a PPP spokesperson, told Yahoo News.
Of the Republican surveyed, 36 percent believe Donald Trump's claim that thousands of Arabs in New Jersey cheered when the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11. Almost 54 percent support Trump's idea to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. and 46 percent think a national database of Muslims in the United States should be created.
Additionally, one in four of those polled by PPP said that Islam should be illegal in the U.S. and that they support the US policy of Japanese internment during World War II.
Williams told Mashable that the company got the idea to include the question on the political survey after watching the GOP debate on Dec. 15. An overwhelming focus on the Middle East and the threat posed by radical Islamists encouraged them to include the trick question.
“We were interested to see how many people would support bombing an area that just sounded Middle Eastern,” Williams told Yahoo. “I thought that would be interesting.”
