SHARE It’s time for Sarah Palin to stop talking, Americans say in poll

Sarah Palin has been upping her game of late when it comes to being critical of Washington, but more than half of Americans say they’ve had enough of her and want her to “be quiet,” a new poll shows.

In a Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg poll, Americans were asked their thoughts on six prominent figures. And Palin, who called for President Barack Obama’s impeachment and also lashed out at House Speaker John Boehner, didn’t fare so well.

More than half of them — 52 percent, to be exact — said the former 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee should “be quiet.”

Of the six people were asked about, Palin fared the worse.

Jesse Jackson was a close second, with 45 percent of those polled wanting him to stop talking.

The field was rounded out by former Dick Cheney (42 percent), Newt Gingrich (39 percent), Al Gore (37 percent) and Bill Clinton (31 percent).

A small amount — 12 percent — said each of the six should keep talking.

And while people are turning against Sarah Palin, they’re also doing the same against Obama. A recent poll showed Americans labeled him as the worst president in the last 69 years, while 45 percent of those polled said we’d be better off if Mitt Romney won in 2012.
