Anecdotally, I can say that my experience jibes with eastern Pennsylvania’s black coloring on these maps. All of our mail has been astoundingly late since mid-December, even by the standards of 2020 postal delivery problems. Christmas cards from family 50 miles away arrived 3-4 weeks after being put in the mail.
Fixing this should be a priority for the Biden administration: get the Postal Service back to its normal dependable service while the memory of what it was like under Trump remains fresh in everyone’s minds. This is absolutely something that everyday Americans notice and care about.
