Just a personal preference, really... Personally, I'm not interested in a manual in any way, shapre or form for my daily driver. I just don't want to be bothered with having to manually change gears on a car that will never be raced or tracked.

I have plenty of other stuff to do while driving - like text people, read emails and watch youtube videos. I KID, I KID!!! ;-)

Being able to keep both hands on the wheel and have one less pedal to deal with surely creates faster lap times but may not contribute to a more enjoyable driving experience.
I gotta say, while trying to hold my groceries on the passenger seat and maneuver some corners at high speeds I really would have liked both hands on the wheel today!
I really have to figure out a grocery box for the floor behind the passenger seat!
On alot of the road courses I've run, I keep it in 3rd for most of the track anyway. Only time I shift is if there is a long straight, in which case means one shift up and one down.

Time? A good driver can get close to automatic times. Learn your car, and you would be surprised what you can do.
Auto is great for jump in go and not have to do anything and become a part of traffic. Manual is good for ripping through gears and feeling like you are driving your muscle car.
Well said. Of all the cars I own, I have two automatics. My wife's mustang because she doesn't drive a stick well enough to do it everyday, and my 78 trans am because I don't want to hack up the floor to swap in a manual and the turbo 400 holds all the torque it makes just fine, but it is a full manual valve body so it is close enough, just no third pedal.
