In a Presidential election that has polarised Brazil largely along racial lines (see maps below), the so-called "Far Right" candidate Jair Bolsonaro just failed to get a First Round majority, with 47% of the vote. 

The remaining 53% of the vote was split among several other candidates, including 29% for his main challenger Fernando Haddad of the Workers Party. This means that the two leading candidates will now go head-to-head in the Second Round in one month's time. 

The term "Far Right," which is routinely applied to Bolsonaro, is of course is just a globalist slur word for any common sense candidate who wants to do what's right for his people. In the case of Bolsonaro this includes fighting crime and corruption, and reviving business in the economically stagnant South American giant.

Although Bolsonaro only needs to exceed his First Round performance by another 3 percentage points to secure the Presidency -- compared to Haddad's extra 21 points -- the result in the Second Round is by no means guaranteed, because most of the other main candidates were from Left-leaning parties, including the Democratic Labor Party's Ciro Gomez, who got 12.5% and the Brazilian Social Democracy Party's Geraldo Alckmin, who got almost 5%. Most of their votes can be expected to go to Haddad.

The latest polls -- yes, I know, never trustworthy at the best of times -- show Bolsonaro and Haddad practically tied. Haddad, as his name suggests, is of Middle Eastern origin, with Lebanese parents.

Ultimately, like the election of Donald Trump in 2016, this election will boil down to implicit White identity and frustration with the corruption and incompetence of Leftist politicians versus the "plantation style" politics of Leftist racial bloc voting motivated by "gibs." 

Essentially the choice is between Brazil becoming like the USA or Venezuela.
