Environmentalist Marina Silva and President Dilma Rousseff are fighting head to head ahead of the October 5 elections.

Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff was the clear favorite to be re-elected in the October 5 election, up to 15 points ahead of her closest rival. That, of course, until a month ago.

After environmentalist Marina Silva replaced a deceased socialist candidate and became the favourite, up to ten points ahead of Rousseff in a likely runoff election. That, sure, until a few days ago.

Now the president is on a comeback and reduces the gap that leads to her rival, perhaps even reaching a technical tie.

All of the above, according to the main Brazilian opinion polls.
