If Donald Trump continues riding his current wave of popularity into the primary season, he could win an early state but isn't likely to last long, former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean predicted Sunday.

"But it's a funny year," Dean said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

With up to 16 GOP candidates in the field by the time the first primary ballots are cast, Trump could win an early state with as little as 16 percent to 18 percent of the vote, Dean told host John Catsimatidis.

"He’s really a candidate who’s collecting anger," Dean said. "And the problem with that is, at the end of the day, people are not interested in electing somebody out of anger."

While Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who each are running for president as well, were elected by their state constituents out of anger, the country as a whole won't follow suit when electing someone to the White House, Dean said.

As for Trump, he said, "I think he'll be gone by March if not much sooner."

On the Democratic side, Dean said he is "all in" for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who he said "has more experience they every other candidate added together."

Though he isn't sure who will be the Republican nominee, Dean said, "I think the hardest person for us to run against is Jeb Bush."
