Polls for Brazilian Election Show Marina Silva to Gain on President Dilma Rousseff Before Presidential Election
On Friday a survey conducted by Datafolha which is a polling firm, revealed that Marina Silva the Environmentalist has brown her lead over the popularity of President Dilma Rousseff by10% points in a probable second-round runoff in the October elections to be held in Brazil.
This was the third poll with in a week's time which revealed that the election on October 5 will go to a second-round vote and possibly Rousseff would be oust by the popularity of Silva, who has joined the race only ten days back after her party's candidate passed away.
Besides the chances looking dimmer in the voting process the president also suffered one more blow on Friday when the publication of a data confirmed that Brazil has entered recession.
Silva will be able to use the recession as a strong weapon against her opponents at the right moment with her candidacy at one of its most crucial times with just five weeks left for the day of election.
The voters who are disappointed with Brazil's political establishment seem to like Silva and see her as a righteous outsider who has the capability to govern the country ethically. The polls revealed that she has drawn the uncommitted and disenfranchised voters and has also stolen support from the supporters of Aecio Neves, the market favourite.
