Evangelical leaders hired an electoral poll to understand how voters in this group are positioned for the 2022 elections, according to the analyst at CNN Thais Arbex.

Federal deputy Sóstenes Cavalcante (DEM-RJ), who will assume the presidency of the Evangelical Parliamentary Front next year, and Bishop Robson Rodovalho, leader of Sara Nossa Terra, in conversation with the analyst, said that the most recent polls do not reflect the reality.

For both, currently, the Evangelical segment is mostly on the side of President Jair Bolsonaro, but it is necessary to pay attention to the economic and social situation in Brazil, since the Evangelical base would be badly hit by negative economic impacts.

Also according to Sóstenes and Rodovalho, if these rates do not improve, it is possible that some of the voters will start voting for former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, mainly due to his government’s social programs. Measures taken by the Bolsonaro government to reverse this scenario are the payment of Auxílio Brasil and the gas voucher.

Rodovalho also said that it is necessary for the government to look at the middle-class voter, the “small businessman”, and stressed the need to pass changes in Congress, such as Refis.

According to Arbex, Sóstenes and Rodovalho understand that, in relation to health, the pandemic is beginning to be controlled, but that the social and economic impact is still “very present”, directly impacting the evangelical voter. Thus, the surveys should help to understand the “behavior” of this group for the coming year.
