WASHINGTON — More than 40 per cent of Americans say Donald Trump should drop out of the presidential race following the release of a video of the GOP nominee making lewd comments about women in 2005.

ABC News together with SSRS survey research firm conducted a rapid response poll, asking whether Trump should withdraw as the Republican nominee for president. Forty-three per cent said he should, while 57 per cent said he should stay in the race.

As to the effect of the video of Trump's vulgar comments on their vote, 53 per cent said they are now less likely to cast a ballot for Trump, and 46 per cent said the recording of the nominee's remarks will make no difference in their decision. Two per cent said the video makes them more likely to vote for him.

There was a stark gender gap, with 62 per cent of women less likely to vote for him while 55 per cent of men say it will make no difference on their vote.
