Most of Us Say Changing the Clocks Isn’t a Big Deal – But Only One-in-Four Like the Current System

83% of Americans say springing forward doesn’t really affect their sleep, at least not after the first few days.  But only one in four want to keep the current system of changing the clocks twice a year.  54% would rather have Daylight Saving Time all year.  19% want Standard Time year-round.


It might take a day or two to adjust to Daylight Saving Time.  But most people say it doesn’t mess with their sleep long term . . .

83% of Americans answered a new poll and said that springing forward DOESN’T affect how much they sleep.  Only 6% said they get less sleep because of it, and 10% sleep more.

Three-out-of-four also said they get the same amount of work done in a day.  Again, just 6% feel less productive now that the sun sets later . . . and 19% get MORE done.

Over 7-in-10 people say changing the clocks twice a year doesn’t really affect them much . . . but that doesn’t mean we like it.

54% want to do Daylight Saving Time all year . . . 19% prefer Standard Time . . . and 27% want to keep the current system of changing the clocks twice a year.

Parents are more likely to prefer the current system.  1-out-of-3 like adjusting the clocks, compared to 1-in-4, who don’t have kids.
