Far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is the clear frontrunner in Brazil's election in October with up to 25 percent of voter support, followed by center-left populist Ciro Gomes with 12 percent, a new poll found Tuesday.Support for centrist candidate and former Sao Paulo Governor Geraldo Alckmin is stagnant at 7 percent.A second-round runoff will happen if no candidate wins 50 percent of the vote.In a runoff, Bolsonaro would defeat another anti-corruption candidate, environmentalist Marina Silva, by 35 percent to 25 percent, beat Gomes by 34 percent to 21 percent, Alckmin by 31 percent to 20 percent, and knock out leftist Fernando Haddad by 35 percent to 20 percent.
