When I used to listen to Glenn Beck, the segment I enjoyed most was “Moron Trivia” (no offense the the hard working morons out there, you’re great, America needs you). The format was for one of Beck’s people to dial a random convenience store and ask the clerk trivia questions. Cruel, for sure, but very, very funny. For instance,
The Democrat pollster Public Policy Polling has basically taken that concept and disguised it as an opinion poll. As to be expected, they target GOP voters for ridicule.
For instance, back in December they had a question about the use of military force
30% of Republican primary voters nationally say they support bombing Agrabah. Agrabah is the country from Aladdin. #NotTheOnion

Agrabah, of course, is the country that is the setting for the Disney movie Aladdin.
Now it seems like they have dusted off their contact list from the air strike poll:
31% of Trump supporters want a wall built along the Atlantic Ocean to keep Muslims out from the Middle East: https://t.co/1p2Tgj8hb0

There was some good news
17% of Trump supporters were unsure about such a proposal, and 52% opposed it.
And there was this innovative way of grading Trump’s popularity:
Much has been made of how Trump is a historically unpopular Presidential candidate, so we did an updated version of a poll we did in the spring testing Trump head to head with various unpopular/unpleasant things to see exactly just how unpopular Trump is when you grade him on a curve. The good news for Trump is that he beats out junk mail, mosquitoes, Bubonic Plague, carnies, Ryan Lochte, and bedbugs. The bad news for Trump is that he loses out to Duke University, middle seats on airplanes, public restrooms, and people who leave voicemails in the year 2016. Trump comes out dead even with personal injury lawyers, so that reflects pretty well what his popularity among Americans in on par with.
