Brazil candidate Rousseff slips slightly in poll

SAO PAULO, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Brazil’s ruling party candidate Dilma Rousseff lost ground in the October presidential race following a recent corruption scandal involving a former aide, an Ibope poll showed on Friday.

Rousseff had 50 percent support compared with 28 percent for former Sao Paulo state governor Jose Serra, according to the poll published on newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo’s Web site.

A similar Ibope poll on Sept. 17 showed Rousseff with 51 percent and Serra with 25 percent. (Reporting by Reese Ewing; Writing by Raymond Colitt; Editing by Todd Eastham)
