According to this poll, Lula would have 51 percent of the votes, against Bolsonaro's 42 percent.

The survey indicates stability concerning the voting intentions detected on October 5; Lula remains with the same percentage. Bolsonaro fell one point, within the margin of error, which is two points up and down.

Taking into account only valid votes (discounting blank and null ballots), the left-wing leader would win with 55 percent support, while the extreme right-wing candidate would have 45 percent.

The survey was conducted between October 8 and 10 based on interviews with 2,000 people in 130 municipalities throughout Brazil.
