Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville says the Republican Party is killing itself with its embrace of Donald Trump and stands to lose an "entire generation" of voters.

"I just didn't think that a modern American party was capable of suicide. I thought that something would happen, that somebody would think of a way to stop this. And they couldn't," Carville tells Vanity Fair.

"And most of the Republicans that I talk to … are not so much worried about losing the election as I think they are about losing an entire generation.

"No one knows how much damage that Trump is going to cause the Republican Party beyond 2016. It is really something, to watch a party just march right over a cliff, and no one can stop them."

Carville, who guided Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, predicts a Hillary Clinton victory and "pretty sizable win" for Democrats.

"The demographic changes in the country are substantial, and they are changing rapidly in a way that is unfavorable to the Republican Party. And the Republicans, I would say, continue to make a bad bet," he said.

"They keep doubling down on these non-college whites. This has proven to be very successful in certain parts of the country and in off-year elections, but it has not worked very well at all in presidential years. It's working terribly now."

He added: "Whatever weaknesses Clinton has, Trump constantly covers them up."
