It is absolutely false equivalence to claim that Democrats were "more duped" by this question. NOT wanting to bomb a fictional land is far from the ignorance of agreeing with it. Not saying there isn't a good amount of ignorance on both sides, but there are plenty of instances where a "No" answer is not "being duped." 1) A good number of Democrats would be opposed to ANY bombing. "No" would simply be their moral choice. It would be a non-starter for ANY option proposed. 2) Even if unsure of what Agrabah was, saying you don't want to bomb it when you don't know exactly what it is seems a perfectly legitimate answer. Probably even more so than "I don't know." Perhaps the third option might have been more enlightening had it been "I would need more information." "Do you want to punch Johnny Boblonsky in the face? Yes or No." Umm... no. Who is he anyway? (Was I "duped?") 3) What about the respondents that actually KNEW it was the Kingdom of Aladdin and said "No, I don't want to bomb a fictional land?"
