Lula the Survivor

Lula’s popularity dropped to a new low: 50%. He could even lose the presidency next year. Observers are rushing to announce his decline. Lula’s response?: “We are going to come out of this stronger than ever”.

He is right. He only dropped 10 points since July. That is nothing if we consider his party's (PT) dirt: Tax evasion, illegal campaign funding, bribes for contracts, to name just a few. He is looking remarkably strong. 50% is half of the country.

Only a direct link between Lula and the PT corruption would cost him the presidency. The opposition has failed to find it. We have Lula for long.
