A new electoral poll, published this Wednesday (17) by PoderData, shows that former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) has 44% of voting intentions in the race for the Presidency of the Republic.
Then comes President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), with 37%. In relation to the previous survey by PoderData, released two weeks ago, the PT’s advantage remained stable, since the two leaders of the electoral race varied within the margin of error.
The result confirms the numbers released by FSB/BTG, on Monday (15), and by Quaest/Genial, on the morning of this Wednesday (17). The two studies indicated an interruption in the growth of Bolsonaro, who had been approaching Lula, even with the beginning of the payment of Auxílio Brasil.
