Majority backs ending Saturday mail delivery

About two-thirds of Americans support reducing the number of days post offices are open and ending Saturday mail delivery as a way for the U.S. Postal Service to fix its financial problems, according to a Gallup Poll.

Sixty-seven percent support reducing the number of days the post office is open, and 63 percent support ending Saturday mail delivery, Gallup found in its survey released Wednesday. Only 41 percent support raising stamp prices, and 57 percent oppose such a move.
