Nearly three-quarters of Americans approve of the job the U.S. Postal Service is doing, according to a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll released Monday.
Seventy-two percent of respondents rated the Postal Service as doing an “excellent” job, according to the survey. The number is largely the same as the results of similar surveys in 2014 and 2017, suggesting recent changes in service have not moved the needle on the organization’s popularity.
However, the survey also found that respondents said they have noticed their mail has recently taken longer to arrive. Forty-two percent reported receiving mail later in the day, while 37 percent said less mail is being delivered than usual. About 17 percent of respondents said changes in service have caused them major problems. More than 60 percent of Democrats, Republicans and independents alike reported such issues.
