Opposition candidate Aecio Neves has a clear lead over Brazil President Dilma Rousseff, according to a survey of voter support ahead of the country’s second election round. Neves would have 52.4 percent of votes in the Oct. 26 presidential runoff, compared with 36.7 percent for Rousseff, according to a Sensus poll released yesterday on the website of IstoE magazine. The survey of 2,000 people in 24 municipalities Oct. 7-10 has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points. Ricardo Guedes, director of opinion-research firm Sensus, also conducts internal polls for the Neves campaign.
