Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton will win the general election this fall and will "crush" Donald Trump, says CNN political correspondent Bob Beckel, even if she has to do it from jail.
"Remind me I said this, she will crush him," Beckel told CNN's Don Lemon on the "CNN Tonight" show Wednesday.
Beckel added, "I mean, she can crush him from jail."
And as for GOP front-runner Donald Trump, should he secure the nomination in Cleveland this summer?
"In the end, the best-selling Halloween mask this October will be Donald Trump's face," Beckel said. "You go on to a college campus and mention Donald Trump, and people flee to the woodwork."
His comments came while he, Lemon, Bernie Sanders supporter Nomiki Konst and CNN political contributor Hilary Rosen were discussing the results of Tuesday's New York primary, and whether Sanders can still gather the delegates he needs for the nomination.
Rosen commented that after the primary, Clinton's team is already looking at the general election.
"They need to," she said. "Donald Trump is going to be a tough general election candidate. That's who everybody expects her to be running against. It's possible other candidates like Ted Cruz could come up."
However, she pointed out that Sanders will remain on the campaign trail, most likely questioning her judgment.
"She can't take her eye off the ball," said Rosen. "She's got a few big primaries next week. And California later in the month. She's got to keep working in the Democratic primary."
But Konst denied that Sanders is out of the race, and said Clinton will not reach the number of delegates she needs by June to clinch the nomination.
