Brazilian presidential candidate Jose Serra is "more experienced".
The latest research Datafolha held on 20 and May 21, shows the candidate José Serra (PSDB) and Rousseff (PT) wire race for the Presidential Palace, both with 37%, but shows a great difference in the perception of its image among voters.
Serra is seen as the more experienced (by 64%), intelligent (42%), director (40%) and more prepared “to be president, in general” (45%). In the same categories, the percentages of Dilma are 17%, 23%, 24% and 29% respectively.
The intersection between the research data indicated that 51% of voters willing to vote for Serra Dilma consider that Mr. Jose Serra is the more experienced. To Mauro Paulino, director general of Datafolha, the performance of the candidate Serra is explained by the fact that he is still best known – 34% say they “know him well,” 15% say the same about PTs Dilma Rousseff.
