The biggest TV brand for Republicans now? The History Channel, which comes in seventh place with a 53.4%. Other top TV brands dropping out of high placings this year for the Republican-oriented include The “Fox” network brand and “Discovery Channel.”

For those leaning to the Democrat political affiliation, the top consumer brand in their eyes is Google, with a 58.1% score. Amazon is next at 57.3%, followed by Craftsman at 54.7%; Dawn at 51.7%; and Clorox rounding out the top five, with a 51.4% number.

The best TV network brand for Democrats: PBS, in seventh place, with a 49.1% score.

Amazon (55.5%), Craftsman (53.2%) and Johnson & Johnson (50.6%) score the top votes for those of Independent political affiliation. Two TV brands made their top 10 lists: History in seventh place (47.7%) and Discovery in tenth place (45.3%).
