SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Support for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has declined in some of Brazil's largest cities. Surveys suggest that a previous bump may be short-lived as the country still grapples with a brutal coronavirus outbreak.
In previous polls, support for the far-right former army captain has increased, although it is widely believed that he handled an epidemic badly that has now killed more than 160,000 Brazilians.
Polls on Sunday indicated that support may be waning.
According to a survey by Datafolha, conducted in early November and published in the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper, its support in Sao Paulo fell from 29% to 25%, while in Belo Horizonte it fell from 40% to 35% with an earlier one Survey September 21-22. The error rate was 3 percentage points.
In Recife and Rio de Janeiro, his support was more stable, the polls showed.
A separate compilation of data by pollster Ibope, compiled on the G1 website, showed on Sunday that Bolsonaro's support has declined in seven state capitals.
The largest drops in support were seen in the cities of Salvador and Rio Branco, where Bolsonaro's popularity fell by 7 percentage points.
While Bolsonaro has been criticized by health experts for minimizing the severity of the coronavirus and rejecting lockdowns to keep the economy going, its popularity was boosted by a 322 billion reais ($ 58 billion) payments program, according to analysts.
