HuffPo Poll: Do Americans Support a USPS Bank?

Following up on yesterday’s post: The Huffington Post just released results of a survey conducted with YouGov they conducted from February 7-9, 2014 to gauge American opinion on the U.S. Postal Services proposed expansion into financial services. Their survey found that:

  • Just shy of half have a favorable opinion on banks, while 74 percent have a favorable opinion on the USPS, but…
  • Seventy-nine percent of those polled are satisfied with the banking and financial services currently available to them.
  • Forty-four percent favor the USPS offering services like check cashing, bill pay and small loans (but not checking or savings accounts). That said…
  • Less than 10 percent say that they would use these services often, and one-quarter say that they would “sometimes” use these services.

You’ll find the complete results here.
