56% Want USPS Postmaster DeJoy To Resign
A majority of American voters—including a sizable share of Republicans—believe Postmaster General Louis DeJoy should resign or be removed from his role at the U.S. Postal Service, according to new polling, as scrutiny has intensified on DeJoy and his history as a businessman in the wake of controversial changes he’s imposed at the agency.
The Data for Progress and the Justice Collaborative Institute poll found 56% of respondents, including 77% of Democrats, 49% of Independents and 39% of Republicans, strongly or somewhat support DeJoy being removed from office.
The poll, which surveyed 1,135 likely voters on August 21, also found a bipartisan majority of 65% respondents—including 55% of Republicans—support recently-passed House legislation that would reverse DeJoy’s changes restore the USPS to its pre-2020 standards of service, and 70% (including 57% of Republicans) want the agency to receive the $25 billion in government funding being pushed by Democrats.
