Ready to lose

As the world awaits Hillary Clinton's decision on running for president in 2016, more reasons arise for her to decline.
What's changed?
Clinton was quite popular during her days as secretary of state. But since leaving that nonpartisan post in 2013, her net favorable rating has been falling. The most recent YouGov poll put her at an all-time low.
How do they think she might turn it around?
Polls at this point are not very predictive. Obama may become more popular. The Republicans could nominate an extreme candidate. Any number of other things could happen.
Hoping for Obama to become more popular doesn't seem like a sturdy plank to build your presidential ambitions.
