    President Elect Donald Trump is booed as he walks through the lobby of The New York Times Building after a 75-minute meeting with Times journalists. The lobby of the Times building is open to the public, and a large crowd had gathered by the time he departed.

    In a two-way contest without Johnson and Stein, Clinton's advantage over Trump expands to five points, 48 percent to 43 percent.

    Clinton's current lead over Trump is down from the 11-point edge she enjoyed in the four-way horserace in the previous NBC/WSJ poll in mid-October, 48 percent to 37 percent.

    That poll was conducted after 2005 video of Trump surfaced with him saying that "you can do anything" to women when you are a star like he is. "Grab them by the p****. You can do anything."
