Nearly one in every three Republican primary voters who responded to a recent poll said they wanted to bomb Agrabah, the fictional city in Disney's 1992 film Aladdin. Democrats polled were slightly less in favor of destroying the made-up place.
The company that commissioned the poll, Public Policy Polling, announced the Agrabah result in a tweet on Friday: "30% of Republican primary voters nationally say they support bombing Agrabah. Agrabah is the country from "Aladdin." [Source]

This is proof of only one thing... that polls are useless because many of those people questioned haven't a clue what they're deciding on.

I don't know how we are going to recover from all of this. The GOP (the Trumpkin sect, anyway) is becoming like the drunk uncle at a kid's birthday party. All of your friends will forever remember you as the girl with the stupid racist uncle.
Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a U.S. polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina. PPP was founded in 2001 by businessman Dean Debnam, the firm's current president and chief executive officer.
PPP is described as one of the "most accurate" polling companies and also as a "Democratic-leaning" polling company because it polls only for Democratic and progressive campaigns and organizations on a private basis.
In addition to political issues, the company has polled the public on such diverse topics as the approval rating of God, whether Republican voters believe President Obama would be eligible to enter heaven in the event of the Rapture and whether hipsters should be subjected to a special tax for being annoying

Seventy percent said either no, or not sure. I find that reassuring, actually.
Polls depend greatly upon the wording.
This particular poll was a trap. Nothing more.
