Standard Time wins poll*

Daylight Saving Time was last shown to be this unpopular in 1919!

America first endured this fuel-saving manipulation of the nation's clocks during WWI. Quickly after the war ended, this morning dawn delying law was repealed in 1919. The salt of the earth population then mostly lived on ranches and farms where the workdays began early.

This surely explains the poll results. Some of our outdoor pets probably voted several times, hoping to be fed sooner
* Sampled population way too small for anything close to scientific polling results.
