From this Saturday morning's Up With Chris Hayes from before the announcement that it's likely that Newt Gingrich is going to win the South Carolina Republican primary race, the panel of Gary Johnson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Ezra Klein and Michelle Goldberg discuss why the trouble Gingrich is going to have should be end up being the Republican presidential nominee.

The racist dog whistles and the anger and attacking the media might help him with Republican primary voters in South Carolina, but they're not going to do him a lot of good in the general election. And as Ezra Klein rightfully pointed out, his favorability ratings are absolutely terrible.

TPM has the latest poll up with Gingrich's numbers as of Jan. 16, 2012 and it ain't pretty.

56% Unfavorable to 26% Favorable
