In the wake, appear Ciro Gomes (PDT) and Simone Tebet (MDB), with 9% and 3%, respectively. André Janones, Vera Lúcia, Pablo Marçal, Luiz Felipe d’Ávila and Eymael score 1%. Leonardo Pericles, Sofia Manzano and Luciano Bivar did not score. Blanks and nulls add up to 9%, while undecided ones are 5%.
In total, 1,640 people were interviewed, in person, between the 1st and the 4th of July. The margin of error is 2.4 percentage points, and the confidence index is 95%. The research is registered with the Superior Electoral Court under the numbers SP-05318/2022 and BR-03964/2022.
