"If she's not more popular now among the constituency … then that just signals some trouble for her and I don't think things are necessarily going to get a lot better.
"There are more bumps in the road. [Biden] may be perceived as having less baggage at this point, even though he's got the Obama hill to climb."
The vice president is expected to announce on Wednesday he is throwing his hat in the ring, just a day before the former secretary of state is set to testify before the House committee on Benghazi.
"Democrats have been very worried about this committee and Hillary Clinton from the start," Attkisson said.
"She has done, my information says, internal polling that has given her reason to worry that the public doesn't think this is a Republican conspiracy."
Attkisson is host of "Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson," a weekly news program on Sinclair Broadcasting's ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox stations nationwide.
She is also author of "Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington,"
published by Harper.
