    Notes: US adults are more likely to have a positive (46%) than negative (28%) reaction to seeing a catalog in the mail, reports Gallup in a recent survey. While adults’ feelings are generally neutral about seeing a letter from a business (30% positive; 34% neutral; 30% negative), the same can’t be said for advertising cards or fliers, which are more than twice as likely to engender a negative (51%) than positive (22%) reaction.
