easiest credit card to successfully apply for

I have a debit card, but in order to make an online US visa waiver application I have to use a credit card. Can anyone tell me which credit card company is the least strict in terms of deciding whether an applicant will be given a credit card?
I am afraid of not getting the credit card and then I am stuck.

I look forward to your reply,

    I presume you mean the ESTA rather than the visa waiver - there is no fee for the visa waiver (unless you're going through a dodgy intermediary online).

    According to the FAQ debit cards are accepted.

    Debit cards are definitely accepted. I used mine a few weeks ago. Please ensure you're using the official US website and not one of those dodgy sites.
