America used to be a nation of newspaper readers, but a sizable number of newspaper subscribers say they have dropped their subscriptions in the past five years.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of American Adults still prefer reading the printed version of the news to reading it online, but that's down from 69% five years ago.  One-in-three Americans (33%) prefer reading the online version of the news, up from 24% in May 2009. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

The national survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted August 11-12, 2014 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
