Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — Brazil’s incumbent president, Dilma Rousseff, will probably win her second four-year term if polls hold true on election day.

dilma rousseffReuters reported that Rousseff, facing internal strife over significant poverty, widespread protests and the NSA spying scandal, is ahead of her opponents. She has 47% of the vote in a recent poll by the Datafolha public opinion research group.

In Brazil, candidates have to make it past the first round of votes and win only if they get 50% share of the vote. Currently, Rousseff’s 47% would help her qualify for the second round, but she would be in a run-off with the second-best vote getter.
