Labor Day weekend is now over, which for many usually means it’s the unofficial end of summer. And based on a new poll, it doesn’t sound like many people are all that unhappy summer is over.
A new YouGov survey finds:
- 26% of Americans do believe that summer concludes on Labor Day.
- But 39% of people actually don’t consider summer over until September 21st.
- Another 19% say it’s over when the new school year begins.
- Overall, only 23% of people described this summer as either “good” or the “best summer ever.”
- On a positive note, that’s up from 15% last year.
- Meanwhile, 26% of people describe this summer as either “bad”, or the “worst summer ever.”
- While that’s not good, it is down from 46% of people who described last summer that way.
- How people feel about this summer, does depend on whether folks were able to go on vacation.
- Of the one in three Americans who went on vacation, 37% call this summer good or the best, while only 14% call it bad or the worst.
- Of those who didn’t take a vacation, only 16% called it a good or the best summer, and 32% said it was bad or the worst.
