Brazil's presidential contenders target swing voters


Brazil’s presidential candidates have been making a last-ditch effort to win over undecided voters ahead of Sunday’s run-off.

Most polls show ruling party candidate, Dilma Rousseff is heading for a comfortable double-digit win.

She cruised through an uneventful TV debate as the opposition candidate, Jose Serra, failed to launch an attack.

But he rallied in the key swing state of Minas Gerais in a bid to win over undecided voters.

It is referred to in political circles as “Brazil’s Ohio” because it has been an accurate predictor of presidential elections since democracy returned.

Rousseff left nothing to chance either and chose to end her campaign in the state, even though latest polls suggest the number of undecided voters has dropped dramatically to just four percent.
