Brazil: Bolsonaro supporters march as his approval rating continues to drop

Source: Yahoo! News

“In Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo, thousands of supporters of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro gathered on Tuesday to march through the streets, with some carrying signs and banners asking the far-right populist leader to use the military to take over the entire government. Andre Meneses, 60, told The Guardian he thinks members of Brazil’s Supreme Court and leftist senators are ‘traitors’ for standing in the way of Bolsonaro, and ‘the right thing to do is put them on the wall and f–ing … shoot them.’ … Polls show Bolsonaro’s disapproval rating at an all-time high …. Based on those numbers, Bolsonaro has little chance of being re-elected in 2022, The Guardian reports, and he has already started trying to sow doubts about the integrity of Brazil’s voting system.” (09/08/21)
