Public Ranks USPS # 1 in Pew Poll

Ninety percent of respondents in a Pew Research Center survey released last week have a favorable view of the U.S. Postal Service.

More Americans have a favorable opinion of the Postal Service than any other government agency, a new survey has found.

The Pew Research Center asked 2,004 U.S. adults their views about 16 agencies in a poll conducted September 5 - 16. The results, released October 1, show 90 percent of respondents have a favorable view of USPS.

“The American people appreciate the work of the Postal Service and its employees, as this new survey demonstrates,” said Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan. “With every business, mailbox and doorstep we visit, we provide the nation with a vital delivery service. I thank our employees for their continued dedication to our mission.”

The Postal Service’s rating has climbed steadily during Pew’s five previous surveys on public sentiment toward government agencies, going back to 2010, when 83 percent of respondents had a favorable view of USPS.

The other agencies in the top five of Pew’s latest survey are the National Park Service (viewed favorably by 86 percent of respondents), NASA (81 percent), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (80 percent) and the FBI (70 percent).
