Daylight Saving Time: 21% of Us Like Shifting the Clocks Twice a Year

Everyone’s a little groggy today thanks to the time shift.  But one in five Americans still like the fact that we do it twice a year.

21% of people in a new poll said they think changing the clocks the way we’re doing it is still the best option.  62% want to stop shifting the clocks, and the other 17% are undecided.  Here are a few more stats from the survey . . .

1.  Of people who want to STOP doing it, 50% think we should switch to permanent Daylight Saving Time.  31% want permanent Standard Time.  Everyone else said they don’t have an opinion, just pick one.

2.  Do you know if we’re in Daylight Saving Time or Standard Time right now?  A lot of Americans don’t, apparently.  The poll was done last week, and 56% thought we were in Daylight Saving Time at that point.  But NOW we are.

3.  19% of Americans prefer waking up when it’s dark out.  Something that happens more because of Daylight Saving Time.

4.  7% of Americans are waking up in the dark most of the year no matter what.  That’s how many said they wake up before 5:00 A.M. on weekdays.  68% wake up before 8:00 A.M.  Only 13% roll out of bed after 9:00.
