As the presidential election draws near, the future of House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin has come into question.

Ryan angered Donald Trump supporters last month when he dropped Trump from a joint campaign appearance in his district. It was because a video had surfaced featuring Trump making lewd comments about women.
