As the U.S. Postal Service proposes to suspend Saturday mail delivery, it appears few Americans will miss it.
American voters have supported by a margin of 79-20 percent the idea of ending Saturday mail deliveries, a review of a Quinnipiac University poll on the shelf finds.
There’s less support for closing local branches of the Post Office, 53-45 percent against that.
And there is strong opposition to federal subsidies for the Postal Service — 57-38 percent — or raising stamp prices — 60-38 percent.
It should be noted that this is not a fresh poll. It was run Sept. 27 – Oct. 3, 2011. The survey of 2,118 registered voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.
Yet it’s unlikely that sentiment about that sixth day of bills and junk mail has changed much.
