Brazil’s former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, 76, has narrowly extended his lead over current head of state Jair Bolsonaro, 67, to 14 percentage points, a Datafolha poll released Thursday showed, leaving only less than two weeks until the first round of the presidential election on October 2.

Should a run-off be held on October 30, the centre-left former president will prevail, securing 54% of the vote to the Brazilian far-right leader’s 38%. Lula’s 16-point lead heading into a runoff was unchanged from last week.

The approval and disapproval ratings of Mr. Bolsonaro’s job in the presidency showed a marginal improvement compared to last week (32% and 44% respectively, compared to 30% and 44% a week earlier).

The Datafolia poll was conducted using the method of personal interviews with a representative sample of 6,754 voters from September 20 to 22. The margin of statistical error is ±2%.
