Poll confirms Lula as the favorite for the Presidency of Brazil | News


Ahead of the presidential elections on October 2, the firm Quaest Consultoría published this Wednesday the results of a new poll confirming Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva as the favorite.


Lula questions Brazilian minister’s rejection to vaccinate minors

The poll showed that the candidate for the Workers’ Party (PT) has the support of 45 percent of the Brazilians surveyed, which would make him the virtual winner of the race for the seat at the Planalto Palace.

Behind Lula, the current president, the far-right Jair Bolsonaro, stands with 23 percent, while the rest of the country’s applicants do not reach 10 percentage points.

The study also asked about the intention to vote in a possible second round on Sunday, October 30, where Lula finished as the winner, regardless of who was at the polls.

According to Quaest Consultoria, the former head of state accumulates 50 percent or more in voting intention in each possible scenario, while his closest opponents such as Bolsonaro and former judge Sergio Moro, reach only 30 percentage points in each case.

The data also reflects the low level of reception that Bolsonaro’s administration has, disapproved of by half of those interviewed, while 55 percent considered that the South American giant has “a worse situation than expected.”

Likewise, the majority of those surveyed support vaccination against the coronavirus in minors, something that the current ruler has continuously rejected, even refusing to vaccinate his own 11-year-old daughter. In addition, it has maintained for these two years a denialist attitude of the pandemic.

Seventy-two percent of those interviewed supported the immediate immunization of infants between 5 and 11 years old, only 20 percent disagreed and the rest were between not knowing about the issue or did not respond.

The Quaest Consultoria survey was paid for by Genial Investimentos and took place between January 6 and 9 with a group of 2,000 people from all regions of the country.
