WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, now leads her Republican rival Donald Trump by only four pct, a drop of two points, according to a latest national poll released today. 

Clinton has the support of 48 pct against 44 pct of the people who support Trump, said the weekly NBC News/Survey Monkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll.

However, in a four-way match-up, Clinton leads Trump by just 2 points - 42 pct to 40 pct. 

Libertarian Gary Johnson maintains 11 points, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein maintains 4 points, the survey said. 

The polls were conducted online from September five to September 11 among 16,220 registered voters. 

In the previous poll by the same organization a few weeks ago, Clinton was leading Trump in double digits. 

But now the race to the White House seems to have tightened nationally and also in key battle ground states. 

In the Real Clear Politics average of major polls, Clinton's lead over Trump has now dropped to 2.4 pct points in a two way race, and a two pct point in a four-way race.
