US election: Will Trump pull GOP candidates down with him?

Donald Trump is trailing in the polls, but will his unpopularity also harm other Republicans running for office this year?

But that causes its own problems, as many voters who support Trump are quick to condemn other Republicans for being disloyal.

Our North America correspondent Rajini Vaidyanathan reports from New Hampshire.
