Looks like lots of people are tired of Sarah Palin.

“More than half of the country has a message for former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin: enough,” said Mark Murray of NBC News Thursday. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll found 54 percent of voters say they've “heard enough from Palin“ and wish she’d be less outspoken about her political views.

The Palin fatigue reaches across political lines. A majority of independents, two-thirds of Democrats and almost 40 percent of Republicans share that view.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, has been active in national conservative political circles. She recently called for President Barack Obama’s impeachment, and helped Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel in his Republican primary bid to unseat Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss.

“Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas,’’’ she wrote recently in Breitbart.com.

Some other poll findings, as reported by Murray: Fifty-one percent of voters say they've heard enough from former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson; 45 percent say they've heard enough from former Vice President Dick Cheney; 43 percent say they've heard enough from former House Speaker (and presidential candidate) Newt Gingrich; 40 percent say they've heard enough from former Vice President Al Gore; and 32 percent say they've heard enough from former President Bill Clinton.
