Our recent poll question highlighted daily morning routines because it is pretty safe to say that almost everyone has one.
Of those who responded to our question, “How do you start most mornings during the work week?” 65 percent said they pour themselves a cup of coffee; 20 percent said they start each day by checking their social media accounts; 14 percent said they exercise; and two percent said they get the kids ready for school.
On Twitter, 60 percent of our followers start their morning drinking coffee, 20 percent start the day trolling social media and 20 percent go to the gym.
Since fall recently pushed summer aside, we asked our followers how they feel about pumpkin spice lattes. There’s a reason why the drink is so popular. According to a Johns Hopkins doctoral candidate studying human olfactory, “The smells in a pumpkin spice latte are in other things associated with this time of year with positive memories such as Thanksgiving, or rustling fall leaves and going back to school.” Some coffee lovers can’t seem to get enough of the drink, while others don’t see what all the fuss is about.
Forty-three percent said the drink is perfect for the season; 28 percent said they prefer other flavors; 20 percent said they don’t drink coffee and 10 percent said they simply can’t get enough of the drink.
Apparently, a good number of our Twitter followers don’t drink coffee—66.7 percent said they don’t drink coffee and 33.3 percent prefer other flavors.
Since September is National Grandparents Month, our current poll question focuses on grandma and grandpa—because almost all of us can say how much a grandparent means or has meant to us. Our question, “What do you remember most about yours?” is up and in full swing. So far, our voters are definitely saying the best thing about their grandparents is the love and attention they have received from them. Tell us what you think. We’d love to hear from you.
