A new poll from Washington Post-ABC News shows that, contrary to some of the conventional wisdom, Hillary Clinton would not win a rematch with Donald Trump. 

The poll, taken April 17-20, showed President Trump leading 43 to 40 percent on the question of who voters would pick if the election were held today. 

Meantime, the same poll found 96 percent of those who said they voted for Trump stand by the decision. Among Clinton voters, 85 percent said they would stand by the decision.

Amie Parnes, co-author of the new book "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign," discussed the new poll results on "America's Newsroom" today. 

Parnes said the poll reflects the fact that many Clinton voters did not feel strongly about her candidacy, preferring to see Sen. Bernie Sanders lead the ticket.

Parnes said Sanders' tough criticism of Clinton last spring did real damage to her candidacy. 

"Bernie Sanders was really pushing the narrative that she was in cahoots with big banks. It did some damage to her. I think that's why a lot of his support ... didn't really come around and support her," said Parnes.
