According to Bloomberg, a recent opinion poll shows support for Rousseff falling due to the country's poor economy. Speculation of a Rousseff facing a runoff helped boost the Brazilian real for the third straight day.
The stronger real has helped many Brazilian stocks including Itau Unibanco and Petrobras-Petroleo Brasilier (PBR).
