National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted April 21-22, 2012
By Rasmussen Reports
1* The Postal Service is considering cutting service from 6 days a week to 5 days a week as part of a plan to reduce operating losses. If it does not reduce costs, the federal government will have to provide additional financial support. Which would you prefer--cutting mail service to 5 days a week or having the federal government provide subsidies to cover ongoing losses?
2* Another proposal is to close hundreds of local post office locations. You knew that your local post office might be closed, would you rather have the postal service close hundreds of local post offices or have the federal government provide subsidies to cover ongoing losses?
