Fuck, why she dropped like that?
I'm out. Gonna drink until i pass out. If some mod want to update the results feel free to do so.
I doubt it's really reversible, and even if there's a second turn he'll only start getting tv time now, so it's more likely he'll just reach people he couldn't reach before.
Generally I always felt like that even when right-wing candidates were elected, they basically won on promises of assistencialism, social welfare and even improvement of public service, even if it clearly wasn't their goal once actually taking power. Bolsonaro's popularity is essentially a rejection of all that. It feels like people believe violent repression will successfully deescalate violent crime, without ever affecting themselves, and that the State is only wasting funds (and fueling corruption) with social programs or protecting minorities.
I don't really feel frustrated if this ends up being the result. People are going to get the government they want, even if it's essentially something that I'd plainly call "evil". They aren't getting fooled or misled.
Bolsonaro is pretty much the president now, even if he doesn’t win in the first turn
Im baffled that people will re-elect aecio neves
How in the world is Bolsonaro going to win this? The guy has always seemed like a complete monster
I feel like crying myself out.
I'm gonna cry
I am crying as I type this, the 'thing' has 48% now and he might win tonight. I have no words to describe how I feel, its so...
God damn it!! Just end it already, I don't even want second turn anymore, it's going to be way depressive. We all know it's over.
Fuck I'm fucking speechless. What the fuck is this shit Brazil.
I also voted for Marina and seeing a joke like Cabo Daciolo above her just makes me want to cry even more
How that happened :(
a lot of Marina supporters changed their vote last minute to try and get Ciro in the 2nd round, so don't read too much into that
Brazil was a mistake.
As an LGBT person I'm literally scared of walking the streets now.
I couldn't even vote today, long as hell lines, I finally gave up and went home.
Welp we are fucked.
It's probably going to the second round but bozo x PT it's pretty clear who's going to win.
If pt didn’t had a runner and supported another one (ciro or marina), i think bolsonaro would lose
Here many (me included, but i voted for marina) hates PT so much, that they prefer to have a facist in power
Maybe it's a good time to buy a VR system
Canada, here we come.
Fun fact, Meirelles invested almost 40 millions of reais in his campaign
He’s even with cabo daciolo now, and he didn’t spend a dime.
The power of the memes
Our only chance is to pull the Hail Mary in 3 weeks and hope for the best.
Hard to believe, but yes
Don't lose hope my Brazilian friends. Here is Costa Rica we had the same scenario. People United against the candidate with the most votes in the first round and he ended up losing to the lesser evil.
This is beyond shocking and frustrating, i'm genuinely scared for a lot of people.
What have we done.
It seems a second round is becoming more and more likely.
It's hard to see Bolsonaro losing in the second turn. I don't believe he can't grab 3-4% from the people who voted for Alckmin, Meirelles, Amoedo and fucking Daciolo (how??!!!).
The problem with the lesser evil is that it stayed in power already for a good 13 years. People want to see them out as much as they don't want to see the fascist. This is not a real scenario.
We lost even if we have a second round. Just be strong and start resisting. We need to protect our rights and our democratic institutions for the next year. Hopefully they will survive and we will relearn to value them.
I just don't understand how people who lived through the military dictatorship can vote for this man. Blows my mind.
Welp. Will have to vote Haddad in the runoff, but will definitely do.
Not a lot of hope though.
I blame the Worker's Party (PT) and former President Lula for the destruction of the Brazilian Left and the rise of Bolsonaro.
Fuck this country.
Well i sure as fuck hope that Haddad can turn this around.
Well, it is what it is. Has there ever been a case where a candidate managed to make up that much ground during the 2nd turn or would it be unprecedented if Haddad managed it?
this is horrible, not only Bolsonaro almost got it on the first round, but we have the horrible scenario for the 2nd round confirmed,
also his shitty party gained tons of seats, from nothing, with very little money,
Brazil just loves Bolsonaro, he is our next savior... our next Lula.
But mostly, the fault is in the assholes.
The impeachment was 99% on her.
Didn't said about the impeachment ... I said how the media covered it. A big part on the people's idea that PT is THE corrupt party in the country when it is not that different from psdb or pp come from that.
