The First roundf of the Brazil Presidential election is due to take place 7th October 2018 with a second round if necessary on 28 October.

This is the latest presidential poll from last month from Datafolha. It indicates that Lula looks as though he's experiencing a surge of popularity since PT were thrown out of office. If he's allowed to run he looks in pole position right now.

The Impeachment and  PSDB's entry into government hasn't done any good for their popularity and their polling numbers have collapsed. In the 2014 election Acio Neves was the main candidate of the right and finished second in both rounds (33.55% first round and 48.36% second round). The various possible PSDB candidates, Neves, Geraldo Alckmin (their 2006 candidate) and Jos Serra (their 2010 candidate), are awfully close to falling into fourth place. That would make Jair Bolsonaro (a character sometimes described as a Brazillian Donald Trump) the leading candidate of the right.

Even though Marina Silva's popularity has sunk heavily in comparison to Lula she's still risen in comparison to PSDB. That and the current President Temer's four percent rating (and two percent rating in Scenario 4) suggests that being in the new government with Temer is really dragging the PSDB down enormously.

Now its a long way out to be making any predictions based on polls but the present direction of travel is fairly stark in this poll.

Temer is the worst, but thankfully can't run, as he's literally a criminal.

Supporting Lula as of now. Great man who left office with a greatly high approval rating of 88%.

Yeah, Brazil is going to be super volatile so predictions are going to be pretty tricky. It could turn out that literally none of the candidates we know and, err, love get through the next two years. Heck, I'm not even certain we can definitely predict there will be an election, if the civilian government continue to muddle as they are doing.

My main hope is that the snakes of the PMDB are destroyed, but they are roach like. I'm also going to make the prediction that Silva will yet again fail to get in the second round.

I realise that the above graphic will be completely illegible on many devices so here is the Scenario 1 (Neves as PSDB candidate) First Round for the above poll

17-18 March

Marina Silva 21
Acio Neves 19
Lula 17
Jair Bolsonaro 6
Ciro Gomes 6

7-8 April

Lula 21
Marina 19
Acio 17
Bolsonaro 8
Ciro 7
Temer 2


14-15 July

Lula 22
Marina 17
Acio 14
Bolsonaro 7
Ciro 5
Temer 5


7-8 December

Lula 25
Marina 15
Acio 11
Bolsonaro 9
Ciro 5
Temer 4


The other first round scenarios show the same pattern but are even worse for the PSDB. Latest figues above for those

Scenario 2   7-8 Dec

Lula 26
Marina 19
Alkmin 8
Bolsonaro 8
Ciro 6
Temer 4

Scenario 3

Lula 25
Marina 16
Serra 9
Bolsonaro 9
Ciro 6
Temer 4

It's funny Dilma, who got impeached, apparently is eligible to run, but Temer, who became President, has his rights to run for office suspended.

Former First Lady Marisa Leticia is hospitalized in grave condition, I would bet no one will try to arrest him while his wife is at risk of life in the hospital.

Some days ago Dilma said that: "If Lula is the candidate for PT, he will win" and "The first coup was my impeachment, the second one will be if Lula can't be a candidate"

This will be an interesting election.

Sadly, former first lady Marisa Letcia has died. Cry RIP

Will this impact Lula's decision to run in 2018? I guess that after this he may step aside.

I don't think he will step abside, but I think he will mention mention her  in some of his speeches saying things like:: "I'm still very sad because she died, but we will overcome this and win!"

Some observations:

I don't know why the polls even include Temer, he already said that he will not run in 2018...

New Opinion poll from Vox Populi shows Lula continuing to storm ahead whilst marina Silva and possible PSDB candidates continue to stall. I believe that this is the first poll showing jair Bolsonaro getting to the second round (although this was so unexpected that they didn't ask about a second round scenario involving him)

Very interesting new poll from Datafolha. The candidates of the PSDB and the PT have been the top two candidates in all of the last six Presidential elections in Bazil, going back to 1994. At the moment however they are in a death spiral in the polls as they are hit by corruption scandals. This latest poll presents scenarios for three possible OSDB candidates and in all three their candidate is polling in fourth place. As Jair Bolsonaro emerges as the leading candidate of the right in the polls this is the first poll to ask how he would do in the second round.

Poll taken 26-27 April 2,781 interviewees in 172 municipalities. Two percent margin of error with 95% confidence. Changes are from December Datafolha poll.

First Round

Scenario 1

Lula (PT): 30% (+5)
Jair Bolsonaro (PSC): 15% (+6)
Marina Silva (Rede): 14% (-1)
Acio Neves (PSDB): 8% (-3)
Ciro Gomes (PDT): 5% (-)

Scenario 2

Lula (PT): 30% (+4)
Marina Silva (Rede): 16% (-1)
Jair Bolsonaro (PSC): 14% (+6)
Geraldo Alkmin (PSDB): 6% (-2)
Ciro Gomes (PDT): 6% (-)

Scenario 3 (new scenario)

Lula (PT): 31%
Marina Silva (Rede): 16%
Jair Bolsonaro (PSC): 13%
Joo Doria (PSDB): 9%
Ciro Gomes (PDT): 6%


Second Round

Scenario 1

Lula 43% (+5)
Acio Neves  27% (-7)

Scenario 2

Lula 43% (+7)
Alkmin 29% (-5)

Scenario 3

Marina 41% (-2)
Lula 38% (+4)

Scenario 5

Lula 43%
Bolsonaro 31%

Scenario 6

Lula 43%
Doria 32%

The poll also incudes various scenarios if Lula is banned from running in the first round as well as scenarios where Sergio Moro (the Judge in the 'carwash' case) is a candidate, although he has not indicated that he will be one

A bit late response, but I don't care, tbh, Datafolha polls are pretty... Trash, their polls said that Doria would get 5-9% of the vote in the mayoral election in So Paulo, he got 53% and was elected in the first turn. The most likely thing to happen in my opinion if Doria runs is that he will hit everyone like he was a truck and win, because So Paulo (state and city) would most likely vote to him, like, a lot.

She's ineligible for the presidency b/c she's term limited, regardless, on account of having won the last 2 elections, though when she was impeached, the Senate couldn't muster the 2-3rds majority of Senators needed to bar her from public office for 8 years, so she's still eligible for to run for other public offices in the near future lol

I know little about him, but isn't this Bolsonaro less a religious conservative (despite his party's name) and first and foremost a fan of military junta? Which means he doesn't have a close analogue in the US.

Doria is similar to Trump in the celebrity thing, but in the policies, I'd put Bolsonaro closet to Trump, specially in the economy. Doria is pretty centrist.

Well, Bolsonaro is very conservative and is also a militares junta fan, economically he is like: tarrifs in foreign products and Fair trade

Some days ago, Globo jounalist Helio Gurovits, posted this:



It shows how benefited by Temer's reforms and Operation Car Wash each candidate is.

The more to the right, the more benefited the candidate is from the Operation Car Wash, the more up you are the more benefited you are from Temer's reforms, considering what happened recently and the fact that he basically doesn't govern the country anymore, he only is the president but can't really do anything due to the scandals, he's reforms will most likely not pass, this will probably benefit Bolsonaro, if the Operation Car Wash continues, Bolsonaro will probaby be the most benefited (unless something happens and changes the graph.)
