Following Apple, Walt Disney came in second with 28% of respondents saying they would vote for the company to run the government. American Express came in third (18%), Facebook in fourth (11%) and Starbucks in fifth (10%).
Christine Barney, CEO and managing partner of PR shop Rbb, said that consumers likely chose Apple because the company hit all three "breakout brands" requirements: putting the customer first; creating the future; and communicating openly and honestly.
"Breakout brands are those that focus on leading. They don't care about competition; they put their customer first," she added.
Notably, Apple wasn't the top breakout brand. Participants chose Amazon as the top breakout brand (25%), followed by Apple (15%), and Uber (13%).
