Two-thirds of Americans (67%) are not concerned about Saturday mail delivery being eliminated, according to the YouGov Omnibus survey taken February 8 - 11, 2013.

Half of all Americans (51%) say they are not worried about their ability to pay their bills on time with the loss of Saturday mail, while only one in four (24%) feel that they will worry.

Nearly two fifths (38%) of respondents feel the cutbacks will have its biggest impact on small businesses and a quarter of respondents say medium-sized businesses are among those most likely to be affected. Three out of 10 respondents gave equal votes to the elderly (30%) or rural area residents (29%) being affected the most by the changes.

If there was going to be one day the U.S. Post Office cut back service, half of all Americans (50%) believe Saturday is the best day, but one third (32%) says no one day better than the others

How concerned are you, if at all, that this change to the delivery schedule will affect you personally?
