Here are some more numbers quoted from the article:

- 62% of Democrats use one or more data services on their mobile phones, compared to 55% of Republicans;

- 53% of Democrats use text-messaging, versus 46% of Republicans;

“Though the differences may not seem great, these variations indicate that advertising across mobile channels tends to be more efficient at reaching Democrats than Republicans,” according to the Nielsen report.
