Brazil: Can the far-right win? Bolsonaro leads ahead of first round

What do Brazilians think of their democracy? We‘ll know on Sunday, when for the first time since corruption scandals brought down politicians from across the spectrum, voters will pick a new president, all of the lower house of parliament and two-thirds of the Senate. With jailed former president Lula barred from running, will the faithful from his Workers Party turn out in large enough numbers to support his replacement candidate? Or could it really be the turn of the far-right?
