Twelve percent of all Republican voters said Trump should end his campaign, pollsters found. Thirteen percent of female Republicans said he should drop out.

Seventy-four percent of all voters reacted negatively to the video, according to the poll. In that video, released on Friday, Trump uses vulgar and aggressive language about women.
