Brazil elections: Serra leads

José Serra (for it is he)

Here's the latest voter intention poll for Brazil's Presidential election, set for October 3rd:

Major newspaper Folha de S. Paulo commissioned the survey taken this week from Datafolha, and put SP's governor in the lead (and up from 32% in a poll last month that was also ran by Datafolha). Lula's PT party candidate Dilma Rousseff scored 27% this week (a point down from last month's 28%), with Brazil socialist Party's (PSB) Ciro Gomes on 11% and the Green Party candidate Marina Silva on 8%.

Put me on record today: I say Rousseff wins this election.
