Mr Trump was widely condemned across the political spectrum following the release of the video in which he is filmed making sexually aggressive comments and talks about "grabbing (women) by the p----". He said the conversation was "locker room banter".
However, as his overall poll numbers plummet, it will be the loss of support from evangelical Christians - a cornerstone of Republican presidential campaigns - that will be of particular concern to the embattled Trump camp.
According to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, Mr Trump had only a 1-point edge over Hillary Clinton among people who identified as evangelicals, down from a massive 12-point advantage for the Republican in July.
Christianity Today, a leading evangelical magazine, said in an editorial that Christians should not support a man whose life is based around “idolatry, greed, and sexual immorality”.
“The revelations of the past week of his vile and crude boasting about sexual conquest — indeed, sexual assault — might have been shocking, but they should have surprised no one,” wrote Andy Crouch, editorial director.

In the audio, published by the Washington Post, Trump tells TV host Billy Bush how he unsuccessfully tried to have sex with a married woman and how “you can do anything” to women “when you’re a star.” The conversation caught on a hot mic took place shortly after Trump married his third wife, Melania, according to the newspaper. “I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump can be heard saying. “I did try and f–k her. She was married. And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’” “I moved on her like a b—h, but I couldn’t get there,” he adds. “And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.” The real estate mogul also told Bush that he’s “automatically attracted to beautiful” women, like a “magnet,” and that sometimes he goes straight for a kiss. “I just start kissing them,” he says. “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.” “Grab them by the p—y,” Trump adds. “You can do anything.”
