Run-off coming on Sunday October 29.
Lula was sliding in the polls in the last week of the campaign - from 50 down to 45 - still looks like he will win but maybe on the second round. It becomes a bit of a crap shoot though, since Heloísa Helena (PSOL) and Cristovam Buarque (PDT) have about 10% between them which is more than the difference between Lula and Alckmin (PSDB). Emotional situation - anything could happen in the second round.
