The results of this poll of GOP voters are pretty stunning: Thirty percent of those surveyed expressed support for bombing Agrabah. (For those of you who are struggling with geography, that is the homeland of Aladdin and Jasmine.)
Other results: 54% back banning Muslims from entering the U.S., 46% support a national database of Muslims, and 28% support the WWII Japanese internment policy.

On Twitter, if I want to see a whole picture without losing my place, I pretend I want to reply to the tweet.
