October 2 is approaching and it doesn’t seem to bring good news for the president. Brazil Jair Bolsonaro. Re-election hopes dashed by latest polls. According to Datafolha, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva would beat him by 19 points in the second round on October 30. The Labor Party (PT) candidate would receive 57% of the vote against 34% of the far-right leader. The rate of blank and invalid votes remained at 8%. The margin of error of the survey is about two points.
Bolsonaro can be beaten even in the first round because Lula currently has 47% intention to vote. To return to government after 13 years, turnouts must reach 50%. These include different political turning points along the way: first, the impeachment of her heir, Dilma Rousseff, by Congress in 2016, followed by the interim presidency of Michel Temer, the lawsuit against her, and subsequent prison. ANDLula’s arrest allowed Bolsonaro to run for president. The former president regained his freedom after the process against him was cancelled. He came out with the decision to beat the retired captain to close what he saw as the worst cycle in the history of the Republic. Datafolha claims that if Lula’s second-round opponent had been his former minister, Ciro Gomes, he would have beaten him by 22 points.

The far-right hopes state aid to truckers and the social sectors hardest hit by poverty, with rates comparable to the 1990s, will help the retired captain improve his position against Lula.
For now, Bolsonaro returns to rhetorical adventures. He told his followers in Brasilia this Thursday that this will happen”It’s easy to implement a dictatorship in BrazilRegarding this issue, he added: “If people are afraid of municipal guards with sticks, imagine me in the armed forces with rifles.” The head of state realized the inconvenience of his fantasies. “I can do a lot, but I shouldn’t… My precaution may be great today, but what will happen tomorrow?” But he still showed himself as the only guarantor of the country’s success. He said his election in 2018 prevented Brazil from going bankrupt. “If it wasn’t for me, we’d already be done. If it weren’t for me, we would already be in communism.”. Bolsonaro will make his anti-communism the axis of his election campaign, which he has already launched, as if in the farrago of the Cold War.
For now, the most outspoken intimidations are being met by Judge Renato Borelli, who just ordered the sentence. Brazil’s ex-Minister of Education arrested, Pastor Milton Ribero, alleging corruption. In the past 24 hours, Borelli has received several death threats from “support groups” from the former official who held the training portfolio between July 2020 and last March.

Gilmar Santos and Arilton Moura, two pastors close to at least Ribeiro and the president, used extortion maneuvers and demanded a percentage of the money given to them for training space from the authorities of small cities.
As expected, Bolsonaro came out to defend the former minister. “I put my hands on fire for him and by my other ministers. I know from experience that almost none of them will commit any acts of corruption”. The pressure from the president in the investigations was already felt. Federal Police delegate Bruno Calandrini “condemned the interference in the conduct of the investigation. Linked to the Ribeiro case and the “different treatment” of the former official who was detained.
