A majority of Americans agree that outspoken conservative Sarah Palin talks too much, a new survey reveals.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center poll says that of all the ex-politicians, the former Alaska governor is the person that they would most like to just keep quiet.

The survey showed that 54 percent of American voters would prefer that the former vice presidential nominee keep her political opinions to herself.

Nearly two-thirds of Democrats and nearly 4 out of every 10 Republicans, as well as a majority of independents, have heard enough of the conservative commentator.

The results of the survey were released Wednesday, just as Palin was calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment over his handling of the border crisis in an impassioned column on the conservative website Breitbart News.

Palin isn’t the only former politician that voters are tired of hearing from.

Forty-five percent of Americans want former Vice President Dick Cheney to shut up, just as he’s making the rounds of TV talk shows, blaming the current Iraq crisis on President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.

Fifty-one percent of Americans also want former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson to quiet down, while 43 percent believe former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich should zip his lips.

Forty percent also said that former vice president and environmental activist Al Gore should put a sock in it. And even popular former President Bill Clinton made the "shut-up" list, with 32 percent of respondents wishing that he’d just stop talking.

The survey also revealed that majority of Americans, 52 percent, believe Obamacare should be completely overhauled (27 percent) or it should be dumped (25 percent). However, a total of 43 percent of Americans say it only needs a few teaks here and there (36 percent) or is working well the way it is right now (7 percent).

The poll of 1,137 registered voters, conducted from June 30-July 7, has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
