New Poll: Most Americans Don't Like Changing Clocks For Daylight Saving Time

A new poll finds that most people across the country want to stop the twice-a-year ritual of clock changes. The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll comes as this weekend marks the end of daylight saving time.

The survey found that 7 in 10 Americans prefer not to switch back and forth. Four in 10 would like to see their clocks stay on standard time year-round, while about 3 in 10 prefer to stay on daylight saving time. Another 3 in 10 prefer the current back and forth between daylight saving time in the summer and standard time in the winter.

At least seven state legislatures have asked Congress to allow year-round daylight saving time.

Arizona does not observe day light savings time.  

The Navajo Nation does change the clocks twice a year for daylight savings time.
