The survey detailed that Lula has 44 percent of the voting intention, while the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, got 32 percent; followed by Ciro Gomes with 8 percent, Joao Doria with 3 percent, André Janones with 2 percent and Simone Tebet with 1 percent.

With a margin of error of 3.2 percent, the survey shows that support for the leader of the Workers’ Party (PT) gives him a chance of winning in the first round.



According to the survey, Lula showed the same percentage of voting intentions as in the one published weeks ago, while his main rival, Bolsonaro, increased by 1 percent.

Regarding the possible result of the second presidential round, the survey indicates that Lula would win with 54 percent and Bolsonaro would reach 35 percent, one percentage point more than the previous survey.

Ipespe carried out the survey between May 9 and 11, with a sample of a thousand people, which was registered in the Supreme Electoral Tribunal, and its confidence is 95.5 percent.
