Did you have to be reminded to change your clocks on Nov. 6 well don’t feel bad because Kathleen Frankovic, one of the world’s leading experts in public opinion polling said in an article titled “Daylight Saving Time: Americans want to stay permanently ‘sprung forward’ and not ‘fall back’” that, “Americans would rather have one time that lasts all year long,” and “one that doesn’t require changing all clocks twice a year."
Kathy writes weekly analyses of polling results for the Economist/YouGov Polls.
Frankovic makes note, “that the latest Economist/YouGov Poll finds that nearly four times as many Americans would end the practice of setting clocks ahead in the spring and back again in the fall.”
In one of her latest public opinion polling writings Frankovic said, “this preference is a rare one that transcends politics…Democrats and Republicans agree, older and younger adults agree too.”
Frankovic made note that “the margin in favor of ending clock changing is much smaller among Americans under the age of 30 then it is among Americans 65 and older…77% of whom want to avoid changing time.”
As one of the leading experts in public opinion polling Frankovic says, “nearly twice as many Americans who prefer not changing their clocks would prefer that Daylight Savings time not Standard Time…be the one that is kept.”
Those supporting Daylight Savings Time indicate they want sunlight later into the evening.
The Economist/YouGov Poll says older adults, “have a clear preference for Daylight Savings Time and so do people from every region.”
Will there ever be action taking us forward and not ‘fall back?’
