    Brazilian election increasingly polarized: Lula's support increases and so does far right Bolsonaro

    Electoral authorities are expected to ban Lula from the election on a corruption conviction. However he has 37.3% of voter intentions, up from 32.4% in May

    Jailed former president Lula da Silva has increased his support by five percentage points and would win Brazil's October presidential election if he was allowed to run, a poll by CNT/MDA showed on Monday. The survey, which was last taken in May, found that almost half of the leftist leader's supporters would transfer their votes to his running mate Fernando Haddad if Lula is disqualified from Brazil's most uncertain race in decades.
