Donald Trump Would Rather Run Against Hillary Clinton Than Bernie Sanders -- Here's Why

Steph Bazzle

Donald Trump, now presumed to be the GOP nominee for the 2016 presidential race, has spoken out about who he'd prefer as an opponent. Trump has been claiming that the Republican primary system is rigged in a way that is unfair to him. Now, he says that the Democratic party's primary system is also biased, and that it favors Clinton over Sanders.

However, that's no problem for Trump, because he says he'd rather run against Clinton anyway.

Both Trump and Sanders have been viewed as outlier candidates, who have motivated voters and shaken up the election process. On Wednesday, Trump expressed another commonality between the two: according to him, both have suffered under what he calls a "dysfunctional system."

"And I don't think she will win the race. If I win, I will beat Hillary. And I believe I'm the only candidate that will be able to beat Hillary."

The most recent of these polls, however, completed data collection before Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out of the race, so they don't take into account any allegiance shifts that may have occurred with Trump becoming the only campaigning candidate for the Republican party nomination.

Secretary Clinton isn't afraid of going up against Donald Trump, though. She spoke to Jimmy Fallon in January, and when asked if she's intimidated by Trump, she gave a firm no.

Elaborating, Clinton says,

"If I am so fortunate to be the Democratic nominee, obviously I'll run against whoever they nominate. But if it's Donald Trump, it'll be quite the showdown."
