Since electronic devices play such a big part in our daily lives, we wanted to know how many of you think the U.S. will one day be paper-less.

Hereís what our polling found: Most of us think itíll never happen.

Our survey results: 56% of Americans said they donít think the U.S. will ever be a paper-less society, while 20% said yes, one day weíll all go paper-less.  Twenty-four percent of Americans were undecided or had no opinion on the question.

Poll Positionís scientific telephone survey of 1,142 registered voters nationwide was conducted December 6, 2011 and has a margin of error of Ī3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults
