Brazil's extreme right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is eighteen points ahead of Fernando Haddad for the runoff scheduled for 28 October. Datafolha released on the evening of Thursday 18 October its latest survey results for the Brazilian presidential runoff which showed Bolsonaro with 59% vote intention against Haddad's 41%.

The Datafolha survey of last week, 10 October, showed Bolsonaro with 58% and his competitor, 42%.

The poll contracted by Red Globo and the Folha de Sao Paulo daily, surveyed 9.137 people in 341 municipalities in the 27 states of the Brazilian union, between Wednesday and Thursday, 17/18 October.

The error margin is estimated in two percentage points, plus/minus, with a 95% confidence index, which means results are 95% likely to be true. Taking into account all possible registered votes, considering void, spoilt and annulled ballots, Bolsonaro collects 50% and Haddad, 35%. Void, spoilt and annulled accounted for 10% and those undecided, 5%.

In the first presidential round on 7 October, Bolsonaro received 46.03% of valid votes while, Haddad, 29.28%.

    “Brazil's extreme right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is eighteen points ahead of Fernando Haddad for the runoff scheduled for 28 October.”

    Brazil's “extreme right” prez candidate..........why the “extreme” ? why not only refer to the “right” ? the MSM carries on attacking the right , as if (to use DT's expression) it were the 'devil incarnate', while the PT and their “communist” allies (PSOL, PC do B and others, including the Foro de SP) are referred to as 'democratic' ......the press needs to learn what impartial reporting and the term 'democratic' really mean...

    Because he is extreme. The same media did not call Macri, or Piñera, or Kuczynski far right, they never call our Conservative party or the main right-wing parties in Europe far right, because they're not.
