Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva continues to dominate the voting intentions of Brazilians for the upcoming October elections with 32.8% compared to 24.4% for the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, who ranks second on the list, according to the results of a poll published this. Monday.

The poll by the National Transport Association, which brought positive results for the Labor leader in the general election on Sunday 2 October, confirmed the trend shown by previous opinion polls.

The study also shows that Bolsonaro’s government remains “bad or awful,” in the opinion of 42.7% of those surveyed, 5.2 percentage points worse than that recorded in December.

According to the poll, opinions about sectors of Bolsonaro’s administration also reveal a lack of enthusiasm among voters about any improvement in core issues such as education, security, employment and income.

Other election candidates maintained their usual low levels of voting intent, with Ciro Gomez taking third place with 2.6%, followed by Sergio Moro (2.1%), André Janones (0.5%) and Joao Doria (0.3%).

The CNT poll, conducted February 16-19 with a margin of error of 2.2 percentage points and a confidence level of 95.6%, showed that economic perception still weighed on voters.

Lula, the only historical leader of the Workers’ Party to date, revitalized his electoral work on the occasion of the 42nd anniversary of that organization, on February 10, to oust the far-right Jair Bolsonaro from power.

“It is as if I and the Workers’ Party are resurrected, nothing is capable of destroying us,” the Brazilian politician declared in relation to the date.
