The Brazil presidential election is too close to call in a likely second-round runoff and the first-round race has tightened, a new poll showed on Saturday.
Fernando Haddad, the leftist Workers’ Party candidate, would get 43 percent in the runoff while far-right former paratrooper Jair Bolsonaro would have 40 percent, according to a survey published by the news website Poder360. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. It was based on phone interviews with 4,000 Brazilians on Sept. 19 and Sept. 20. Poder360 says it doesn’t run polls for politicians or political parties.
