A Rasmussen Poll over the weekend asked Americans if they would rather see an infusion of taxpayer money to support the Postal Service, or if they could live with cuts in service.
About 50% of American Adults believe the federal government should allow the Postal Service to curtail the workforce if it needs to reduce losses, rather than provide subsidies to cover those losses.
Thirty-three percent (33%) think the government should provide subsidies to cover the losses.
Another 17% are undecided what's best.
And rural areas should still get service, but 75% would rather see the USPS cut back mail delivery in some parts of the country to three or four days a week, rather than for the government to cover those losses. Only 17% would rather see the government provide more subsidies instead of cutting back delivery.
