A survey published Thursday places far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro 13 percentage points ahead of rival Fernando Haddad for Brazil's October 28 presidential runoff.

 The Datafolha survey, which recognizes a margin of error of two percentage points, was made with a sample of 3,235 voters across the country, it was reported.

In practical terms, Bolsonaro would have 58 percent of support and while the leftisit Haddad would be backed by 42 percent of the voters.
Bolsonaro, a former military officer, is described as the “Brazilian Donald Trump.” He represents the closest to the far right Brazil has ever been since the end of the dictatorship in 1985.

    REF: “so what ? it does not make him honest, does not stop him from being an insecure commie who can't even fart without going to Curitiba to ask for Lula's permission”:

    At least the new government will make everyone stop earning LESS money!

    TWO “ prestigious” (?) awards....if you think so…One, from Bloomberg Philanthropies…Ah, you mean the one Michael Bloomberg owns, liberal, ex-Mayor of NYC, and well-known for supporting leftist causes ? Two, the “Mayors Challenge, awarded by the UN to São Paulo (in 2013) for a city project envisioning environmental friendliness, modernism, quality of life improvement…a wonderful project, “on paper”, which delivered none of the aforementioned targets…just need to live here to see what happened ..or better, what didn’t happen during Haddad’s tenure. He connected no dots...but that‘s you Terry, lapping up the crap, “sem conhecimento de causa”.

    Oh, Haddad has 2 degrees and a Phd ? Did he send you proof of those claims ? I also know people with 2 degrees and a master’s…also from the USP…so what ? “
    As those who know ?” and who are they ? Haddad’s family, Manuela D’Avila ?

    You claim I asked you to “add some more… about Brazil ranking 6th in the world economy”…”in quotation marks”, means nothing……but pls, show me the paragraph in which I posted it….if you don’t mind.

    The public record also showed that the 5th and 6th places were fleeting and due, far more to England’s and France’s economic recession after the 2008 crisis, than Brazil’s performance….but ok, I can see how difficult it must be for you understand “complicated” numbers. End of story for you, Numb Nuts.

    “Master, what is the secret to happiness”
    “Not to argue with idiots”
    “Master, completely disagree that this is the secret”
    “Yes, you are right...”

    Fact : Still waiting for you to tell me where I posted “add some more… about Brazil ranking 6th in the world economy”…
    Fact : You can't find it....neither can I.

    Fake : he was a good mayor ...
    Fact : he was so “shitty”, he lost his bid for re-election in the first round....
    Fact : Terry refuses to accept that reality...

    Ah, Haddad NOW has “FOUR” degrees ??....WOW, “he's the man”.

    .....“Yes, you are right”....I believe in the secret to happiness.
