Luján leads Toulouse Oliver, 64 percent to 25 percent, according to a poll conducted by GBAO, a Democratic polling firm. A memo outlining the poll's findings was sent to Dan Sena, a consultant for Luján who served as executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee last cycle when Luján was chairman. The polling memo also said Luján had higher name ID and favorability among Democratic primary voters, though voters viewed both candidates positively. The memo said Luján led among men, women, Hispanics and Anglos. The poll of 600 likely Democratic primary voters was conducted April 15–18, the memo said, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
