The 76-year-old opposition leader would receive 52%, a pointless, although the change was within the poll’s error range of two percentage points.

Just on Wednesday, Bolsonaro declared that if elected, he will keep federal fuel taxes at zero and enhance financing for Brazilian cities the following year. Additionally, he pledged that his economic czar would eliminate taxes on thousands of produced goods by the end of 2023 to revive the industry.
