Yesterday we all had to turn the clocks back by an hour for Daylight Saving Time (yes, ‘savING’, not ‘savINGS’) which means it’s going to be getting dark a lot earlier now, which is totally depressing. And for that reason, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to find out that most people in America would be totally in favor of getting rid of the practice all together.

A poll conducted by finds that 74% of Americans want Daylight Saving Time to end. It seems most people would prefer having later sunset times so the sun stick around a little longer through fall and winter.

“We were very surprised to see the poll numbers that high,” the organization’s creator, Anthony Boldin, says, adding that “74% is a huge majority.” He adds, “There are many problems and side effects associated with earlier sunsets and time changes. Most people like more sunlight in the evening, too.”
