Nah, I don't think the negatives matter at all. Smash fans are notoriously whiny about anything that isn't to their specific tastes and the people you make happy by including a character are worth way, way, way ****ing more than the people you make happy by not including a character. If you don't like a character, don't play them or buy them. It's that easy to ignore them outside of possibly playing against others who like them (in which case, it's just once again that other people like something that you yourself do not).Steve is ahead of Sora but I also think it is important to also note that characters like Sora, Steve and Waluigi are in the negatives with more people against their inclusion to being in Smash Bros. I feel like that tidbit of information is important to share in regards to how the community feels about a particular character.
The Smash fan base also has very standard characters they really dislike such as Steve and Sora because they perceive them as threats to their personally more wanted characters that are frequently more niche (niche isn't a bad thing mind you, it's just more focused and that's how I use it), so of course you'll see an over-representation of dislike for those characters in the same way the core fan base will over-represent certain character depending on how and where it is polled/promoted.
