Brazil's left presidential candidate Haddad beats far-right Bolsonaro -poll

SAO PAULO, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Brazil’s leftist Workers Party candidate, Fernando Haddad, would defeat far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro in an expected runoff vote in next month’s election, a Datafolha poll showed on Friday.

In a simulated runoff vote, the poll found Haddad would get 45 percent voter support, beating Bolsonaro with 39 percent.

A second-round is required if no candidate wins a majority in the Oct. 7 first ballot, which is expected to happen. (Reporting by Brad Brooks; Editing by Sandra Maler)
