SAO PAULO, Oct 17 (Reuters)Brazilian presidential candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva saw his lead over incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro slightly drop ahead of the Oct. 30 runoff vote, according to a survey by pollster IPEC published on Monday.

Lula’s voter support reached 50% against 43% for Bolsonaro, compared with 51% and 42%, respectively, in the previous poll.

The survey by IPEC interviewed 3,008 people on Oct. 15-17 and has a margin of error of 2 percentage points up or down. IPEC was one of several polling firms criticized for underestimating support for Bolsonaro in the first-round vote early this month.
