Silva could win Brazil vote after running mate's death: poll

Then Brazilian presidential and vice presidential candidates for the Socialist Party (PSB) Eduardo Campos and Marina Silva are seen in Brasilia on April 14, 2014Environmentalist Marina Silva could unseat incumbent Dilma Rousseff in Brazil’s October presidential vote, a poll found Monday, a stunning political twist after Silva’s running mate was killed in a plane crash. Silva, a 56-year-old former environment minister, has moved into second place ahead of the October 5 first-round vote and would defeat Rousseff in an October 26 runoff, the survey by Datafolha found. It was the first poll taken after Socialist Party candidate Eduardo Campos’s death in the August 13 plane crash. Silva was Campos’s vice presidential running mate, and is widely expected to be chosen to replace him at the top of the ticket when party leaders announce their decision Wednesday in Brasilia.
