JUST 10 days before elections, Brazilian ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva extended his lead over incumbent Jair Bolsonaro, according to polling released yesterday, inching closer to the 50% of votes needed to avoid a runoff.

Lula climbed two percentage points from the prior week—now polling at 47 percent, up from 45. Bolsonaro, meanwhile, remained at 33 percent both weeks, according to the latest poll from the Datafolha institute.
