    Eager to kick Al Capone out of the Planalto Palace.

    Brasso, I seriously doubt you really think Bolsonaro is anywhere near as effective as Al Capone was at what he did. Rather, Bolsonaro has been singularly ineffective at everything he's tried to pull off, and I think we both can be thankful for that...

    Can either of you (Brasileiro & imoyaro), or anyone else access the scrolling polling links at ? I can not, but am interested in the validity of the statistical data.

    Fort, I'm able to access it, but in order to interpret the charts, you need to be able to see the colors/shades of the states to see what is who, and I am unable to screen print that page... (?)

    Fort, I accessed the website and I confess that the graphic data presented are in line with the Poderdata and Paraná Pesquisas surveys, which present figures more favorable to Bolsonaro, which I believe is a product of the research methodology (not face-to-face/not flow). The difference between Bolsonaro and Lula is currently 10.5% in favor of the latter.

    I personally prefer the calculation methodology carried out by Datafolha, which is in person and found a difference of 12% at the end of July.
