I think most of the viewers do sympathize with Skylar, which is probably the more normal thing to do. I am just more invested in the other characters, who are just as flawed as Skylar, and have a hard time really connecting with Skylar and don't really pity her. In my view she didn't do enough to get Walt to stop going down the evil path and so she really has no other choice but to deal with it now. Her speech about how she is weak was absolutely right. Actually I don't pity most of the characters in how their lives have turned out except Jesse, Hank and the kids.
