More Americans consume news from the Internet than from print newspapers according to a Pew Research study.

Almost four in ten, or 38 percent, get their news online compared to 20 percent for print. Television is the leading news source at 57 percent. Not surprisingly, ingestion of news on mobile devices has rocketed from 54 percent in 2013 to 72 percent today.

The study correlates with decline in print readership at newspapers across the country.

It is also one of 16 striking finds in 2016 by Pew, a nonpartisan fact tank that conducts polling, demographic research, content analysis and other data-driven social research.

Other findings:

• From 2000 to 2014, adults living in middle-income households fell in 203 of the 229 metropolitan areas.
• Republican voters are becoming more diverse, better educated and less religious "at a slower rate" than the country while the Democratic party is becoming less white, better educated and less religious at a faster rate.
• Millennials have surpassed baby boomers and now number 75.4 million.
• Young people ages 18 to 34 are more likely to live with their parents.
• Unhappiness with the European Union was high, with 42 percent of people polled saying they wanted more power returned to their nations’ capitals.
• Americans are split on marriage between same-sex couples and allowing transgender people to use public restrooms.
• Almost half of black people polled are doubtful that America will ever make changes to achieve equal rights.
• Facebook is the most popular social media platform among Americans, with Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn lagging.
• Americans are wary of “human enhancements” such as brain chips, gene editing and synthetic blood.
