BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro has maintained his double-digit lead over leftist rival Fernando Haddad in an election poll of voter intentions on the eve of Sunday’s run-off vote, according to a new survey.

The MDA poll published on Saturday by transportation lobby CNT showed that Bolsonaro had 56.8 percent of voter support, compared to Haddad’s 43.2 percent, almost no change from the previous MDA survey five days ago. The numbers are in line with other polls that show Bolsonaro taking 56 percent (Datafolha) or 57 percent (Ibope) of the votes.
