Former Ceará governor Camilo Santana (PT), who is running for the Senate José Wagner/Disclosure
Former Governor of Ceará Camilo Santana (PT) handily leads the dispute for the only seat in the Senate for the state in this year’s election, according to a survey carried out by the Paraná Pesquisas institute between May 1st and 6th and released this Monday, 9th.
In the first scenario, Camilo has 66.8% of voting intentions against 3% for former councilor Marcelo Mendes (Avante), 2.7% for Pastor Paixão and 0.5% for businessman José Alberto Bardawil (PL). Among those interviewed, 19.5% said they would vote blank, none or nullify the vote and 7.5% said they did not know or did not respond.
In another scenario, Camilo Santana has 66.2% of the votes against 2.8% for Raimundo Matos, 2.7% for Marcelo Mendes and 2.5% for Pastor Paixão – 19.3% say they will vote blank, annul the vote or none and 6.6% did not know or did not want to respond.
Despite the loose leadership, Camilo needs to be careful. First, because the PT-PDT front, which has governed the state for four terms (two with Cid Gomes and two with Camilo himself), faces difficulties in maintaining hegemony – as shown by report by VEJA, the same poll by Paraná Pesquisas shows the reserve military police officer Captain Wagner (Pros), in the lead in the two scenarios surveyed: against the governor Izolda Cela (PDT) or against the former mayor of Fortaleza, Roberto Cláudio. Another factor that Camilo must take into account is that the Senate candidacies are still being stitched together, including the one that will make up Wagner’s ticket.
The survey was carried out through personal interviews with 1,540 voters from 60 municipalities in Ceará and was registered with the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) under number CE-06551/2022. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
