Brazilians Looking for a Few Good Politicians

    Brazilian voters who plan to cast their votes on Sunday, October 3, are looking for good administrators for their cities, according to the 72nd round of polls conducted by the National Transport Confederation and the Sensus Institute (CNT/Sensus). The results were announced yesterday. 

    For 42.1% of the respondents, good administration is one of the major criteria they use to choose a candidate, the survey indicates. Second come the proposals presented by the candidates (20.4%), followed by personal qualities (17.7%) and the profile of a “good politician” (13.9%).


    The poll also registers an increase in the number of people who are accompanying the municipal elections. In May, 18.9% said they were accompanying this subject with great interest. In September, this portion was up to 38.2%.


    According to the survey, the index of people who wouldn’t vote for a candidate backed by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was 28.7%, down from where it stood in August, at 35.9%.


    The percentage of those interviewed who would only vote for candidates who had the support of the President grew from 10.1% in August to 14.9% in September.


    Another 25.5% affirmed they might vote for a candidate recommended by President Lula, while 25.1% said that they would only vote if they were familiar with the candidate.


    The poll interviewed two thousand people in 24 states between September 21 and 23. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
