Winter is again on the horizon in much of the United States with the end of daylight saving time approaching Sunday.
Standard time begins at 2 p.m. local time on Sundays. Set the clocks an hour before bed on Saturday nights and get an extra hour of sleep. Going forward it will be lighter earlier in the morning but darker earlier in the evening.
But a recent survey shows that most Americans want to avoid switching between daylight savings and standard time, although there is no consensus behind which should be used throughout the year.
Only 25% of Americans polled by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research say they prefer to switch back and forth between standard and daylight savings times, when the sun rises and one in summer. Hours later sets in. standard time.
Forty-three percent of Americans say they would like to see the standard time used throughout the year. Thirty-two percent say they would like daylight saving time to be used throughout the year.
Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and most of Arizona do not observe Daylight Saving Time. Daylight Saving Time returns on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 2 p.m. local time.
The AP-NORC poll of 1,083 adults was conducted October 21–25 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is designed to be representative of the US population. The margin of sample error is plus or minus 4 percentage points for all respondents.
