How can Daenerys make her claim stronger than Jon's

After Rhaegar's death, Aerys made Viserys his heir, and following Aery's death, Rhaella crowned Viserys on Dragonstone.  Subsequently, Viserys made Dany his heir.  From the point of view of a Targaryen loyalist, there is an unbroken line of succession.

Daenerys can also argue that she is Targaryen on both sides, being born of incest, whereas Jon is part-Stark, and part-Targaryen.

Finally, we don't know what the terms of the annulment and new marriage were.  The marriage might have excluded any children from the succession.

Eh? Isn't she half Targ, half Martell?

No.  Her mother and father were brother and sister.

I think you're confusing Dany's brother, Rhaegar, who married a Martell (and a Stark), with their father, Aerys, who married his own sister.

Of course that doesn't mean they're 100% Targaryen. Their parents' parents were a Targaryen and a Blackwood. And the Targaryen was half-Dayne. And the Targaryen half of that great-grandfather was half-Martell. And so on. But then as you go back, some of those non-Targaryen ancestors had some cadet- and/or maternal-line Targaryen blood in them, so… you probably don't want to work out the exact percentage.

At any rate, whatever percentage Targaryen Dany is, Jon is half that—his father has the exact same ancestry as Dany, and his mother is a Stark with probably no Targaryen blood.
