I don't think that's a good reason. I mean, he's going to be King of the entire land and rule over all Lords, he's not really dealing with other Kings, politics doesn't play a strong enough role here. He knows how to play his role as a leader, he knows how to delegate etc etc. Renly is just a jealous brother who has done fuck all to prove himself other than suck some dick.
EDIT:Also, it's not that people take Stannis seriously, its that Stannis is too serious which is why people don't like him, but that shouldn't be enough to keep him from his rightful throne.
