Fox News Channel has been replaced by a soap on an annual list of brand preferences.
The first place spot on the GOP list is Craftsman, which is No. 3 for Democrats. Two other brands that fell out of the top 10 Republican list are Chick-Fil-A and the Discovery Channel.
While there is some political crossover of brand awareness — for example Cheerios, Amazon.com, Johnson & Johnson and Home Depot are on both the GOP and Democrat list — some big brands only make one Top 10 ranking. Google, which ranked No. 1 by Democrats, is not among the Republican Top 10. Welch’s, No. 8 for the GOP, does not make the Democrat Top 10.
Another: PBS is ranked No. 7 by Democrats, but does not make the GOP Top 10.
