from aljazeera.com: "Brazil elections: A tight and turbulent race
Presidential election campaigning has been packed with drama, with Bolsonaro and Haddad pulling ahead in the polls.
...It's been a turbulent contest so far, packed with drama, including an assassination attempt on Jair Bolsonaro, the far-right frontrunner who continues to lead opinion polls while recovering in hospital.
Former Sao Paulo mayor Fernando Haddad of the leftist Workers' Party is second, having taken over from ex-President Luiz Inacio "Lula" da Silva, who is serving a 12-year sentence on corruption charges and was barred by the electoral court from running earlier this month."
Presidential Campaign 2018
"...given that support for Bolsonaro has steadily grown in opinion polls all year and that Haddad has risen rapidly since he took over Lula's candidacy, barring an unforeseen circumstance, it's seen as almost certain that these two will make the second round runoff, scheduled for October 28."
"...Ibope showed that Haddad would narrowly beat Bolsonaro in the runoff but, for most analysts, the race is still far too close to call."

Polls & Quotes
"...TV time is designated according to party presence in the lower house and, until now, Bolsonaro gets mere seconds of free TV time each day, due to his small coalition in Congress, while the Haddad gets several minutes worth because the Workers' Party has 61 congressmen. While equal TV time could help level the playing field for Bolsonaro, the Workers' Party has an established history of producing slick, hard-hitting campaign ads."
"...Bolsonaro has the highest rejection levels of any candidate according to polls, but Ribeiro said that Haddad's would likely rise, given Brazil's current polarised political atmosphere which is replete with deep anti-Workers' Party and leftist sentiment."
"It will be a festival of negative propaganda from both sides," Ribeiro said of the second round, where both candidates are given equal free television advertisement time.

"...Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential elections, signalling a political shift for South America's most populous nation and largest economy.
Official results gave Bolsonaro a 55.2 percent share of the vote in Sunday's runoff, comfortably ahead of Fernando Haddad, the candidate of the centre-left Workers' Party (PT), who had 44.8 percent."
