Congress is currently considering a postal service overhaul which would eventually eliminate Saturday delivery in a bid to make the postal service more cost efficient.

How would that go over with the public?

According to a new poll, the majority of Americans are okay with this potential move.

Rasmussen Reports asked 1,000 adults if they preferred cutting mail service to five days a week or having the federal government provide subsidies to cover ongoing losses. Seventy-five percent said the post office should drop Saturday delivery, while 20 percent wanted the government to continue covering post office operating losses.
