It wasn't really.

The Confederacy of Independent Systems/Sepratists were know to have won the Battles of

They also successfully conducted attacks on Obi-Wan Kenobi's fleet and Mahranee, as well as the destruction of the Felucia medical station, the Bombing of Coruscant's central power distribution grid and the Devaron Massacre.

You should note that Star Wars: The Clone Wars frequently focused on the Republic's greatest heroes, such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu and the like. It isn't hard to assume that less talented Jedi were losing battles that we just didn't see.

Additionally, Palpatine was manipulating both sides of the war. It's likely he prevented the Separatists from being too successful, as that would make controlling the entire Galaxy later on more difficult.
