GOP voters in South Carolina (including a majority of evangelicals) set aside concerns about Newt Gingrich’s three marriages, his past ethics charges and the millions of dollars he has made as a Washington, D.C., insider, propelling him to a dominating win in Saturday’s primary. But a Wall Street Journal editorial noted that Gingrich’s biggest challenge going forward, particular in a general election, is that most voters don’t like him. A Fox News poll conducted two weeks ago found that 56 percent of registered voters had an unfavorable view of him, while only 27 percent had a favorable view. That’s a net unfavorable rating of minus-29 percent, compared with a plus-5 percent net rating for President Obama and a plus-7 percent for Mitt Romney.
