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.

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.
