While it was understandable, in her own way Warren bet on Clinton in 2016

She not only didn’t run, she stayed mum while the Sanders movement, which started out as being in large part her movement until she declined to run, was getting trashed by the establishment.
So she’s starting from scratch in the minds of many young voters, and while she has her record of standing up to the banks and Wall Street, that’s just the beginning in winning the primary vote. Primary voters will want an anti-war candidate, and she’s not noted for standing up to the Forever War proponents (which include Clinton, and to a lesser degree, Obama).
And then there’s the perception by some that Trump got the best of her over her claiming minority status by way of having Native American ancestry. It was on her resume at Harvard, and though it’s a dead horse issue to many people now, especially Democrats, it looks like it could be a persisting liability if she’s the Democrat’s opponent to Trump.
