It sounds like the massacre of the faith of the seven has left a pretty large power vacuum, that Cersei hasn't bothered to fill.

Cersei is an excellent manipulator and competitor, but really looks to be clueless as an actual leader. She basically straight up tells Jaime she has no idea how to run the military or how to deal with her enemies in a geopolitical sense.
Cersei is the Donald Trump of Westeros.
