A new poll found that more than half of the country is sick of hearing from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, who called this week for President Obama’s impeachment.

The  NBC/WSJ/Annenberg poll showed that 54 percent of the respondents said they would prefer that Mrs. Palin take a back seat in the nation’s political debates. 

The survey showed that two-thirds of Democrats, most independents and almost four-in-ten Republicans said they’ve heard enough from Mrs. Palin.

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that he disagreed with Mrs. Palin’s push for impeachment, and the Wall Street Journal editorial board cast the idea as delusional, describing Mrs. Palin as a “fading star” whose calls for impeachment “could mean that the former Alaska Governor has been feeling neglected.”

Others, though, celebrated Mrs. Palin’s declaration that “enough is enough” and that Mr. Obama must go, with the last straw being his inability to secure the nation’s borders.

The NBC/WSJ/Annenberg poll also showed that 51 percent said they’ve heard enough from Jesse Jackson, 45 percent said they’ve heard enough from former Vice President Dick Cheney and 43 percent say they’ve heard enough from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. 

The poll was conducted June 30 to July 7 of 1,137 registered voters and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
