Leftist Candidate Leads Polls Days Before Brazil Elections

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

Leftist candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, former President of Brazil, is the front-runner in the polls in the last few days leading to Brazil’s elections on Sunday. Da Silva, right-wing incumbent Jair Bolsonaro, and five other candidates participated in a debate. Mauro Paulino, former head of Datafolha, a Brazilian polling institute, called it “the most important (debate) since Brazil’s redemocratization” in 1985. The debate quickly became contentious with moderators repeatedly calling for decorum among the candidates.
