Brazilian senator requests investigation into electoral poll system

Brazilian senator requests investigation into electoral poll system

Brasilia, Oct 4 (Prensa Latina) Senator Marcos do Val on Tuesday requested a Parliamentary Investigation Commission (CPI) to analyze and determine the systems of voting intention polls for Brazil´s main companies and institutes.

This request was made due to the results of the first election round on Sunday that thwarted the predictions of opinion polls, and according to experts´ assessment, the amount of mistakes compromises the credibility of elective poll firms.

According to the lawmaker from the Podemos party, the goal of the CPI will be to determine the causes of the discrepancies between the results of the polls and the election, observed on October 2.

In the request, Do Val stated that, in addition to the variations among the inquirers, there are unacceptable deviations in the preferences and percentages of the various candidates, even in evaluations on the eve of the election.

The request also cited the impacts of these investigations on the formation of the political-electoral scenario and electors´ voting decision.

He insisted it is urgent to conduct a free, deep and complete technical-scientific investigation into all the elements that influence those investigations, emphasizing the sociological, mathematical, demographic and the involved political-party elements.

In the presidential referendum, for example, the Datafolha Institute and the Intelligence in Research and Consulting(IPEC) forecast that far-right President Jair Bolsonaro would win less than 40 percent of the votes.
