President Dilma Rousseff amounts to about 40% of voting intentions, followed by the environmentalist Marina Silva (25%) and the Social Democrat Aécio Neves (20%), according to the latest polls.
In a possible second round, scheduled for October 26, if no one candidate wins more than the half of the vote this Sunday, Rousseff would defeat Silva by a margin of seven to eight points, according to the latest polls.
The propaganda on TV last night concluded with attacks from Neves and Silva to Rousseff, who offered a “new government of new ideas.”
Silva and Neves are disputing the possibility of reaching the second round against Rousseff and coincided in to attack corruption cases that have been reported in the state oil company Petrobras.
Between attacks of their opponents and own mistakes, Marina was falling in the polls. This, in turn, allowed the rise of the third candidate in dispute, the Social Democrat Aécio Neves.
