WASHINGTON, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Despite mounting pressure from the Republican Party establishment to ask Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race after the disclosure of his past lewd comments about women, a new poll found on Sunday a majority of Republican voters want the party to stand behind Trump.

According to the POLITICOMorning Consult poll, nearly three in four GOP voters said party officials should continue to support Trump, with only 13 percent saying otherwise.

Overall, 39 percent of voters think Trump should end his campaign, while 45 percent think he should not drop.

Trump said on Saturday he would never drop out of the race despite mounting bipartisan condemnation of his lewd and sexually aggressive comments about women in 2005.

"I'd never withdraw. I've never withdrawn in my life," said Trump in an interview with The Washington Post, adding that he had "tremendous support."

However, even his running mate Mike Pence said he was "offended" by Trump's lewd remarks about women.

"I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them," Pence said in a statement, adding that Trump's 2nd debate Sunday night with his rival Hillary Clinton was an opportunity "to show what is in his heart."

Trump's defiant tone on Saturday came hours after U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan joined other Republican leaders in their condemnation of lewd comments about women made by Trump.

"I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified," Ryan said in a statement.

"I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests," added the statement.

In a leaked audio clip recorded in 2005, Trump made lewd remarks about an unidentified married woman he hoped to have sex with, boasted about how easy it is to attract women with his celebrity status and even talked about groping women.

When you're a star, women let you do anything, he was recorded as saying.

The New York billionaire later apologized for the "locker room banter" in the audio, but claimed that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, "has said far worse to me on the golf course -- not even close."

However, Trump's bid to shift the focus seems to have failed as the chair of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, together with a number of other influential Republican lawmakers, released statements blasting the billionaire. Some of them even urged Trump to quit the presidential race.

"No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever," Priebus said in a statement.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Ding Ning edged past teammate and defending champion Li Xiaoxia 4-3 in a blockbuster final to win the women's singles table tennis title and the 10th gold for China at the Rio Games on Wednesday.

Earlier on the day, Xiang Yanmei shrugged off the unexpected neck injury to win the ninth gold for China in the weightlifting women's 69kg category.

Ding, who left the London Games with a silver medal four years ago amid tears, fell on her knees and sobbed into her hands after she sealed the final point against Li.

The two were matched set for set throughout, but Li faded in the final set losing at 11-7.

"I'm so excited, I can't believe I did it. I don't know how to explain my feeling, I feel that I became a lot more mature than four years ago. This is a very tough match, I think Li and I both did well," said Ding.

"In the final set, I played much tougher than my opponent, I am really proud of myself," added Ding.

DPR Korea's Kim Song I, who was playing in her first Olympics, took the bronze with a 4-1 win over Japan's Ai Fukuhara.

The all-Chinese final reflected the country's continued domination in the sport. World number one Liu Shiwen watched the final from the sidelines after failing to be picked for the singles event.

Lifter Xiang, winner at the World Championships in 2013 and 2015, failed in her third attempt in the snatch when she put the 118kg barbell above her head but suddenly the barbell fell awkwardly on her head and down her neck and dropped to the floor.

"I saw little sparks all of a sudden. I got hurt a little bit; I felt hurt when I knocked my head," Xiang said.

Despite the hiccup, the 24-year-old Xiang still took the lead and kept the momentum to jerk 145kg for a winning total of 261kg.

"I didn't think about it at all during the jerk, so it didn't affect my performance," she said.

Japan was the biggest winner on the fifth matchday in Rio, winning three golds to jump to the third place on the medals table.

Haruka Tachimoto and Mashu Baker struck double gold medals for Japan by winning women's 70kg and men's 90kg judo finals while star gymnast Kohei Uchimura won his second Olympic men's all-around title.

Kazakhstan swimmer Dmitriy Balandin caused one of the biggest surprises of the Rio Olympics so far by winning the men's 200m breaststroke gold medal.

Swimming in lane eight after qualifying last for the final, Balandin hit the wall in 2 minutes 07.46 seconds to beat Josh Prenot of the United States by seven hundredths of a second.
