Bernie Sanders says he would beat Trump by "15 or 20 points"

Looking past the primary to the general election, Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders told ABC News’ Cecilia Vega Tuesday that he hoped business mogul Donald Trump ends up as the Republican Party’s nominee and says he would beat him by “15 or 20 points.”

“Between you and me, I would love to see Trump win the Republican Nomination,” he said, flanked by supporters who had followed him down the sidewalk on the streets of Manhattan. “Yeah because we would beat him by 15 or 20 points in the general election.”
