Republicans, Hispanics and young Americans ages 18-29 see it as particularly bright

A national survey of 1,066 registered voters conducted by Poll Position on Oct. 30, three and a half weeks after Steve Jobs’ death, asked which of three high-tech companies — Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) or Facebook — had the brightest future.

As you can see by the results, Apple with 43.6% came out well ahead of Google (25.9%) and Facebook (9.6%).

We expected 18-29 year olds — many of them raised on iPods and iPhones — to see Apple’s future as particularly bright. But who knew the company had such strong support among Republicans?

The survey, conducted by telephone, has a margin of error of ±3%. For more on Poll Position’s methodology, click here.
