America Will Never Go Paperless According to Majority of Survey Respondents
ATLANTA—Jan. 3, 2012—Since electronic devices play such a big part in our daily lives, Poll Position wanted to know if Americans think the United States could ever be a paperless society.
In a national scientific telephone survey, Poll Position found that 56 percent of Americans said they don’t think the country would ever be a paperless society, while 20 percent said “Yes, one day we’ll all go paperless.” Twenty-four percent of Americans were undecided or had no opinion on the question.
The 18-29 age group voiced the strongest opinion, with 63 percent saying the United States would never be a paperless society vs. 23 percent who said it could become a paperless society.
Results from men and women were similar, with 56 percent of men and women both saying this country could never be a paperless society.
Along party lines, more Republicans (58 percent) than Democrats (51 percent) believed the United States would never be a paperless society.
Poll Position’s scientific telephone survey of 1,142 registered voters nationwide was conducted on Dec. 6, 2011, and has a margin of error of ±3 percent. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults. A breakdown of survey participants by age, race, gender and political affiliation in crosstabs for this poll is available for download.
An online companion poll is now open to participants. This poll provides unscientific results, meaning it’s a tally of all voter, not a nationally representative sampling.
