CCTV: Farnsworth on Brazil's Presidential Runoff

On October 5, Brazil's presidential election took a surprising turn as Senator Aécio Neves came in second and now heads for a runnoff against President Dilma Rouseff. Marina Silva, previously polling second, garnered 21 percent of the vote. However, Neves faces a difficult road ahead. "Neves would have to take 70 percent of Marina supporters to overtake Dilma Rousseff’s supporters," said COA's Vice President Eric Farnsworth on CCTV. The economy will be the deciding factor, adds Farnsworth, and the candidates’ distinct views on this issue may help voters decide come October 26.
