In the survey, applied between April 18 and 20, about a thousand people were interviewed and showed that the former Brazilian president maintains his position at the forefront of the presidential race against his possible opponents.
Likewise, the entity specified that the statistics of valid votes for Lula reach 49.9 percent, and estimates that he could win in the first electoral round.
In parallel, the study reported that the current president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, has 31 percent of the votes, obtaining one point more than in the last survey applied by the institute.
On the other hand, the results of the poll show that former minister Ciro Gomes has 8 percent of the votes in favor, while the former governor of Sao Paulo, João Doria, has 3 percent; and Senator Simone Tebet posted 2 percent.
In the event of a second round, Lula would also beat Bolsonaro by obtaining 54 percent support compared to 34 percent for the current head of state.
Ipespe specified that the survey was conducted by telephone and presents a margin of error equivalent to plus or minus 3.2 percent, being registered in the Superior Electoral Court.
