So it comes down to 8 tossup/swing states and who her opponent is. The thing is with all this talk about demographics perhaps bring some red states into the purple category and purple into the blue. It isn't happening that way. The red states are becoming redder and the blue states bluer.

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Of course...almost anyone could win.
Will she is a better question, IMO.
My answer is...she is better then Clinton but is still a very bad choice for America's future...along with Clinton, Bush, Christie and whomever else the Reps/Dems (two sides of the same political coin, IMO) peddle out for the ignorant masses to choose.
I think every one of these people will make a lousy POTUS (though of the four, I think Warren is the most 'decent' human being).
I dislike her for POTUS.
But I have almost complete contempt for Clinton, Bush and Christie. Clinton married her way into contention. Bush was born into contention and Christie blabbed/flatulated his way into contention.

General? Hell yeah, the GOP ticket looks absolutely laughable. So nearly any shmuck the Dems put up will likely come out winning. The primary will be the difficult part, though, as Clinton has all the big banks and corporations right in her back pocket. Warren doesn't have a third of the money and the influence. And, as we've seen, in elections, $$$ = everything.

The democratc voters may not want Hillary, but the establishment Dems are hellbent on making sure she's appointed.
It would depend greatly on who her opposition was. If it is a radical rightie nut like Cruz or Paul - yes - she would win by going to the center a bit. If it is somebody already in the center - it would be tougher.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I don't think it's possible. She's too far left. People don't support candidates when they lean too far, for the most part. I think an establishment democrat such as Hillary would have a better shot.
That being said, I think the GOP is going to put up a tough fight this time around.
