Lula’s Lead Narrows

A survey produced by Vox Populi for Carta Capital
magazine shows a 10% lead for Brazil’s President Inacio Lula da Silva (Workers Party, PT) in the vote intention over conservative candidate Geraldo Alckmin (Brazilian Social Democratic Party, PSDB). Here go the numbers:

-Lula 42% vote intention (-3% variation from June/-7% from May).
-Alckim 32% vote intention ( 0% variation from June/+9% from May).

This is the first poll not showing Lula wining in the first round. Presidential elections are scheduled for October 01. A run-off would take place on October 29. To avoid a second round a candidate needs more than 50% of votes.
