Republicans: Broad doubt about Gingrich’s temperament

Fewer than half of all Republicans say former House speaker Newt Gingrich has the kind of personality and temperament to serve as president, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Some 48 percent of self-identified Republicans say Gingrich, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, has the mentality to be a good president, but a large number — 40 percent — say he does not.

Even when GOP-leaning independents are included, the numbers hardly budge: 50 percent see Gingrich as possessing the right sort of temperament; 39 percent say he does not, with 11 percent expressing no opinion.
