The average Brazilian voter in 2014 is between 25 and 34 years old, has a high school education and a low monthly family income – up to R$ 1,448 (US$ 618). He lives in the Southeast region, in a small countryside town, with fewer than 50,000 inhabitants. Candidates who manage to convince the average voter are very likely to reach the end of the dispute at the top. Today, President Rousseff, the PT’s candidate for reelection, is the closest to this average voter. Her voters have the characteristics closest to those of the most common social profile (Folha).
The Brazilian foreign minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo supports Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s opening of talks with opposition leaders and protestors. Violent protests in the country have killed at least 17 people over the last month. Figueiredo also discussed the American whistleblower Edward Snowden, in an interview with Folha.
