Jair Bolsonaro leads final polls in Brazil


Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who does not deny being homophobic and even claims to be proud of it., is the most likely to become the new leader of the country, according to the polls. In an Ibope opinion poll that was published last night, Bolsonaro was at 54 percent, compared to left-wing candidate Fernando Haddad’s 46 percent. A Datafolha poll put Bolsonaro at 55 percent and Haddad at 45 percent, The Guardian reports. While the opinion polls show that Haddad has made gains and narrowed the gap, they also indicate that Bolsonaro is still a leader.Bolsonaro has been a controversial figure in Brazil for many years for his homophobic and sexist remarks. He has also said he wants to relax gun control and wants to restore the death penalty. If he wins, Bolsonaro will become Brazil’s first far-right president since the end of the 1964-1985 military dictatorship.
