Internet radio smartphone app Stitcher surveyed 2,129 American adults, 1,024 of whom are smartphone owners, and found that more than half of smartphone owners would make their Election Day choices on an app if it were possible to do so (it's not).

Breaking down the numbers, Stitcher found that Democrats are more willing to vote with an app than Republicans, 54% to 47%. As might be expected, younger voters are more likely to approve of mobile voting. Men are also more likely than women to be willing to vote with an app by a slim margin of 49% to 47%.

Stitcher also found that 41% of smartphone and tablet owners are getting more information about the 2012 election via mobile apps, social media and web browsing than they did four years ago.
