05/14/2018 - 15:08:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Brazil's former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is currently in jail with little chances of running for president, had the most significant voter support in a CNT/MDA opinion poll about the 2018 presidential race in the country.

According to the survey, Lula has 18.6% of the voters' support, followed by Jair Bolsonaro, a right-wing Brazilian representative, with 12.4%. Compared to the previous edition of the survey, released in March, Lula remained unchanged, while Bolsonaro rose ten basis points.

Ciro Gomes, a left-wing candidate, remained in the third place, with 1.7% of support - unchanged from the last edition -, while the environmentalist Marina Silva, who is also a former Brazilian senator, rose to the fourth place, with a 1.3% voter support rate, from 1.2% in the March edition.

Sao Paulo's state governor Geraldo Alckmin, viewed as a candidate most aligned to the financial market agenda, had a 1.2% support, down from 1.4% in the previous edition of the survey.

Excluding Lula from the list of potential presidential candidates, Jair Bolsonaro leads has the most support (18.3%), followed by Marina Silva (11.2%), Ciro Gomes (9.0%) and Geraldo Alckmin (5.3%). However, only Ciro Gomes had larger support compared to March.

At that month, Bolsonaro had 20.0% of the votes, followed by Marina Silva (12.8%), Ciro Gomes (8.1%) and Geraldo Alckmin (8.6%).
