Republicans, Rural Voters, and Seniors Support Financial Assistance for the Postal Service During the Pandemic

Our firm partnered with Hart Research Associates to conduct a national survey online of 804 registered voters focused on voter perceptions of the importance of the Postal Service and how to deal with an operating fund shortfall caused by the coronavirus pandemic.  The survey shows that virtually all voters say the mail and package service is important and favor Congress appropriating funds to maintain those operations in the next round of financial relief legislation.  Even when presented a counterargument stating that the Postal Service’s financial problems predate the pandemic and are “caused by charging package delivery rates that are too low,” two-thirds of voters support “direct funding to the Postal Service during the crisis”.
