Brazil’s Bolsonaro could become President in run-off

More than 147 million Brazilians are eligible to vote on Sunday More than 147 million Brazilians are eligible to vote on Sunday

If no candidate gets a majority, the race will go to a second-round run-off between the two top vote-getters on October 28.

Bolsonaro, however, has predicted the run-off won't be necessary, saying he believes he will win the presidency in the first round.

He added that if Bolsonaro reaches 34 percent in Wednesday's Ibope poll, it could augur well for a first-round win, noting that Bolsonaro's campaign believes they are 5 to 6 percentage points short of winning outright.

"Last week I would have called it impossible. It's not the most likely scenario, but it's possible", said Sergio Praca, a political science professor at the Getulio Vargas Foundation.

Bolsonaro was due to address supporters via a Facebook Live later on Saturday.

Haddad's campaign hit hard at Bolsonaro on Thursday, using the last day of TV advertising to compare the former army captain, who has long praised Brazil's 1964-85 dictatorship, to Adolph Hitler. That has sparked demonstrations and a social media campaign: #EleNao (#NotHim).

The signs that Bolsonaro is gaining momentum drove Brazil's stock index up to a near five-month high and its currency to its strongest level in nearly two months on Wednesday. The worldwide rallies were also organised through the Brazilian Women Abroad Against Bolsonaro Facebook page.

In the third place, Ciro Gomes remained stable at 11 percent. He said they had helped tip some wavering voters to Bolsonaro, who had just left hospital after being stabbed in the stomach three weeks earlier by a man police said acted alone out of political motives.

His nearest rival, Fernando Haddad of the leftist Workers' Party, stood at 22 percent. Bolsonaro was even making inroads in the poor northeast of the country, a traditional Workers Party stronghold.

"A lot of lies on the internet", he said.

"In truth, my vote is a protest vote", said Amaral, a 64-year-old retired civil servant in downtown Rio de Janeiro. Brazilians choose among 13 candidates for president Sunday in one of the most unpredictable and divisive elections in decades.

About 26 percent of voters say they have yet to decide for whom they will vote, according to a Datafolha poll released on Thursday.
