Lyft has gained customers during Uber's run of bad publicity

It's not clear whether this is just a temporary blip. Uber has faced additional bad publicity in recent weeks, including sexual harassment allegations, a lawsuit by Google alleging the theft of trade secrets and a viral video showing Kalanick losing his temper with an Uber driver.

But the company is trying to turn its image around. Kalanick issued an apology for his treatment of the driver and vowed to seek leadership help.

And 1010data noted that although San Francisco-based Lyft is growing at a faster rate, Uber which is also based in San Francisco remains the ride-hailing giant: It said Uber has arranged about 86% of all app-based rides since 2014.

Still, the firm's data put numbers on the power of politics to influence a sales pitch or show, at least, that the company knows who its audience is.

1010data said in a statement that its data are sifted from "a number of sources of consumer spending data representing millions of consumers" in online and offline retail markets.

Gabrielle Jasinski, a spokeswoman for 1010data, said that the study was not commissioned by Uber or Lyft and that 1010data has no affiliation with either company.
