    Democrat Hillary Clinton holds a four-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in the final national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll of the 2016 presidential race. 

    Clinton gets support from 44 percent of likely voters, while Trump gets 40 percent. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson is at 6 percent, and the Green Party's Jill Stein is at 2 percent.

    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."
