STORYLINE: Days before October 2nd's upcoming presidential election in Brazil, frontrunner Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is ahead in the polls. If he wins, "Lula," as he is affectionately known in Latin America's largest country, will be headed towards a historic third term as leader, beating out incumbent, right-wing President, Jair Bolsonaro. It's been a difficult road for da Silva, a former metalworker who rose from poverty to the presidency for the first time in 2003 – a position he held until 2010 – leading the country during the commodities boom. He was jailed in 2017 for allegedly receiving favors from government contractors involving properties he used or was considering buying and spent 19 months in a cell before his convictions were annulled in 2019, allowing him to seek reelection, but he is remembered by many as the president who expanded social welfare, lifted tens of millions out of poverty and into middle class. It's a legacy that has made him wildly popular among the working poor and progressives, who hope he can do it all over again if re-elected in 2022. But others remember his administration's ties to widespread corruption scandals, including that of Lava Jato, or Car Wash, which revealed a tentacular scheme of kickbacks and money laundering. As of Monday, da Silva leads Bolsonaro in the latest IPEC polls by 48% to 31%.
