she could very well win the general and lose the election.


You mean the Primary right? lol.

Again, this far out and pitting her against three different candidates. It's not representative of her challenges yet.

It's not really about who you pit her against. People don't trust her. Unless she can fix that she's the underdog against any sane opponent.

very true, but there should be real concerns about how unpopular she is.

The scrutiny doesn't get higher than running for president. At this point her best bet is probably going to character assassination on whoever the GOP nominee is and bring their negatives up to match hers. Then it's just a democrat vs a republican and in a national contest that gives her the upper hand.

in theory, depends on how fired up the perspective bases are.

If she does a good enough job of character assassinating Jeb or whoever else, the Dem base will be excited to keep him out of office, even though they'll sigh when they check the box for her. GOP base will definitely be fired up to vote against her but no more than they were to oust Obama.
