If the October 2022 presidential elections were held this Wednesday (29), former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) would win the current president, Jair Bolsonaro (no party), by 56% to 33% in the 2nd round , according to a survey by the PoderData institute.
The difference between the two, of 23 percentage points, remains stable within the margin of error in relation to the last round of the poll, released earlier this month, when 55% of respondents said they would vote for Lula, against 30% who preferred the former army captain.
The same survey shows that the PT would beat all the names that were placed in second round simulations, with great advantage. They are: João Doria and Eduardo Leite, from the PSDB, Luiz Henrique Mandetta (DEM) and Ciro Gomes (PDT). The current president would lose to everyone.
The research was carried out through calls to cell phones and landlines. There were 2,500 people interviewed, in 451 cities spread across the 27 units of the federation, between the 27th and 29th of this month.
If Lula went to the second round with any of the Tucano names, the result would be the same, according to PoderData: 53% to 15%, with 30% of blank or null votes and 2% undecided.
