Lula beats Bolsonaro in any electoral scenario in Brazil

Brasilia, Jul 7 (Prensa Latina) A new Gallup poll on Wednesday reportedly unfolds former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva beats President Jair Bolsonaro in all scenarios for the 2022 elections in Brazil.

The survey data, the result of a partnership between Genial Investimentos company and Quaest Consultoria e Pesquisas consultancy firm, reveals that Lula has a preference of 43 to 45 percent of respondents against 28 to 29 percent for Bolsonaro.

Politician Ciro Gomes, with 10 to 11 percent support in the same scenarios, ranks third in voting intentions.

For the sampling, a new methodology was used, based on tools for correcting the substrates questioned, which will be monthly until next year’s elections.

Some 1,500 people over 16 years old were interviewed in 27 Brazilian cities, totaling 95 cities throughout the country.

The poll contemplates scenarios with several candidates considered third way, shows Lula’s intentions at this moment, and reveals that they are still little known by the electorate.

In a spontaneous poll, the founder of the Workers’ Party also leads, with 21 percent of preferences, while Bolsonaro has 18.

The number of undecided voters is much higher, 57 percent. In a runoff between the former labor leader and the ex- military, the former would win with 53 percent against 33 of the preference votes, according to the poll.
