Americans Prefer 5-Day Postal Deliver To Increase in Fees Or PO Closings

Gallup reports: as the U.S. Postal Service officially takes steps toward a reduced, five-day delivery schedule to help solve its financial problems, Gallup finds that 68% of Americans favor such a move -- easily more than would like to see government funding for the postal service, higher stamp prices, or the closing of their local post office branches." One interesting note reported by Gallup: "Americans may not object to reduced mail delivery in part because they are more likely to send e-mails than letters in the mail (67% vs. 53%) -- although they are still more likely to pay bills by mail than online (66% vs. 47%)."
