Tens of thousands say Not him to leading Brazil candidate

Man who attacked Brazil presidential hopeful Bolsonaro acted alone

Group rallies flooded the avenues and squares of Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia other towns across the country as both supporters and protestors hit the streets on September 29. If Bolsonaro is not able to win the majority of votes on October 7, the election is decided in a second round of voting.

"Statements like Bolsonaro's are typical of those who can already smell defeat", she said.

Brazil's far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro said Friday he would only accept the result of next month's election if he wins, suggesting that any victory by a rival would be through fraud. Bolsonaro's incendiary rhetoric has helped fuel his rise, but it has also led to the highest rejection rating among all the candidates.

Against Ciro Gomes, most polls show Bolsonaro losing by a landslide, but the Sensus poll shows him at the lead, with 35.1 percent of voting intentions against the 33.5 percent of Gomes.

His support is particularly thin among women, who led the protests against him Saturday, although men and children were also in attendance. Another difference of the Sensus poll is Bolsonaro's position in second round simulation: unlike in other recent polls, the candidate is shown with an advantage over his adversaries. The poll, published by the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

3 justices at annual Mass ahead of Supreme Court's new term
For the current term, the court has some important cases, though none yet of the magnitude of the biggest from the previous term. Democrats and Republicans have argued about whether a week is enough time to carry out a thorough investigation.

Brazil is now experiencing an intense period of political reshuffling after a tumultuous few years. It has suffered a deep recession, a prolonged corruption investigation that ensnared the political class, and the impeachment of its first female president after highly contentious proceedings.

But his campaign has both benefited from and contributed to the political divide by focusing on culture-war issues and "traditional" family values.

Bolsonaro, an admirer of Brazil's 1964 to 1985 military regime, has accused the Workers Party of trying to rig the elections. He has also promised to give police permission to shoot first and ask questions later. "Bolsonaro as president would be a tragedy for the country". Another son tweeted a video of around 100 women who were identified as Evangelical leaders, saying "Yes him, Bolsonaro represents me!"

Bolsonaro, a former army captain who favors easing gun controls, shot ahead early in the race by tapping the anger of Brazilians fed up with political corruption and rising crime. "This might be the main area for (changing the minds of) people who are inclined toward him but are uncertain".
