If Americans were to vote for a new president today, Sen. John McCain said it would likely be Hillary Clinton.

According to CNN, McCain made the remarks during a Thursday interview with Piers Morgan.

"I would bet, my friend, as much as I hate to admit it, that right now - this is why we have campaigns - but right now, if the election were tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would most likely be the president of the United States," the Arizona Republican said.

While McCain said Clinton wouldn't be his pick, he said the surge of women entering official positions shows the country is more accepting of female candidates.

Clinton hasn't said she's running for president in 2016, but that hasn't stopped Republicans from attacking her record as they look to take back the White House.
