Far-right candidate Bolsonaro gains little after stabbing: poll

September 11, 2018

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil’s far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who was stabbed in the stomach during a campaign rally last week and is in intensive care, maintained his lead in Brazil’s presidential election race, a poll by Datafolha showed on Monday.

The first survey conducted since the near-fatal stabbing of Bolsonaro showed he won 24 percent potential votes among those polled, slightly up from 22 percent in a Datafolha survey released last month.

Leftist Ciro Gomes was in second place with 13 percent.
