A new survey by PoderData, released this Wednesday (22), shows that former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) increased his advantage over President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) in an eventual 2nd round contest.
The PT has 52% of the voting intentions, against 35% of the current president. The gap is 17 percentage points. In the previous survey by PoderData, released 15 days ago, Lula (50%) and Bolsonaro (40%) were 10 points apart.
The current president has dropped 5 percentage points in the last 15 days. The maximum difference between the two pre-candidates was recorded in the round made from late August to early September 2021, when it was at 25 points.
