Morning Poll: Looking on the Bright Side?

By all accounts, 2020 was terrible.

A pandemic claiming hundreds of thousands of lives. Police killings. Riots. Violence in the streets. Unemployment. Hunger. Businesses closing. Rising levels of crime. Election controversy. Schools closed. Medical workers exhausted. Lockdowns. Social isolation. To name just a few.


Overall, this year sucked. But on an individual level, there are undoubtedly people for whom 2020 had some redeemable qualities.

Maybe you got engaged, or had your first child, or got a big promotion at work. Maybe spending more time at home and with family wasn’t so bad.

At the risk of making some feel guilty, this morning we’re asking: was 2020 actually a better year for you, personally, than 2019?
