Brazilians t polls: extreme right Bolsonaro has a big advantage in the polls

Posted by maryamyamin on October 27th, 2018

 The Brazilians are pulling today to the ballot box for the second round of the presidential election written by Week News.

Judging by the polls, that victory seems to be reserved for Jair Bolsonaro, an extreme right old army captain.

A survey that was conducted on the eve of the elections showed that as many as 56.8 percents of voters wanted to vote for him. The chance that the left-wing presidential candidate Fernando Haddad of the Workers Party will be the winner is getting smaller and smaller.

The 63-year-old Bolsonaro, who has been in charge of the Social Liberal Party since the beginning of this year, is already serving seven terms in the Brazilian Congress and promises to tackle crime and corruption in the country.

He distances himself from the political elite and says he stands up for voters who are fed up with political corruption, crime and violence. Before he was a candidate for the presidency, Bolsonaro was best known as a supporter of the former military dictatorship (1964 - 1985) and the torture practices used by the regime.

He was also charged with sexism, racism and homophobia. The Brazilian Supreme Court rejected the racism complaint, but has yet to comment on a case in which he had called an MP "not pretty enough to be raped".

A week ago, Bolsonaro promised that he would expel all "red" leftists from Brazil or throw them into jail. The last two days Bolsonaro took a more moderate tone. Among other things, he seemed to return to his plan to follow the example of US President Donald Trump and to withdraw Brazil from the Paris Climate Agreement.
