A Republican strategist is predicting Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham Clinton2020 is not a family affair, for a change New York Democrat pens op-ed on why he opposes impeaching Trump Rob Zombie on canceling 'The Hunt': 'A bulls–-- sacrificial lamb that solves nothing in society' MORE will win the White House — but he doesn't expect congressional Republicans will work with her.

"I believe she's going to win in an electoral landslide and be the most unpopular president in electoral history, which is quite the paradox," political strategist John Weaver told David Axelrod on "The Axe Files" podcast.
 
Weaver, who has worked with the presidential campaigns Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. John McCainJohn Sidney McCainBiden's debate performance renews questions of health At debate, Warren and Buttigieg tap idealism of Obama, FDR Meghan McCain swipes at Sanders: 'Don't you dare lecture Biden about cancer' MORE (R-Ariz.), said the Republican Party is going through an "existential crisis."
 
"Unfortunately, instead of seeing this as an opportunity for Republicans to do a little self-introspection, a chance to look beyond ourselves, and to rise to the moment — which would help us grow nationally," he said, "the instinct will be to throw land mines, not to govern and to cause problems above and beyond being just the normal loyal opposition ideologically."

The damage to the Republican Party in the 2016 campaign, both "demographically and to our long term chances," won't be repaired until the GOP has a more inclusive vision, Weaver said.
 
The GOP strategist also suggested he thinks he will continue to work with Kasich.
 
When asked about the chances the Ohio governor would make another presidential run, Weaver appeared unsure.
 
"Could I see him doing it again? Yes," Weaver said.
 
"Could he? I'm not sure he's there yet."
