According to a YouGov poll taken in March, 64% of Americans want to stop changing the clocks twice a year. But Congress is more divided, as regional differences complicate the effects; while Southern states would see more daylight with permanent daylight saving time, Northern states might not see the sun until after 9 a.m. in the winter. 

As Congress loses sleep over what to do next, most sleep experts agree that a standard time—not jumping back and forth—is best for our health. Furthermore, a 2020 study showed a spike in fatal traffic accidents in the week after we changed the clocks.
