Brazil swings far-right: Decisive lead for Bolsonaro ahead of presidential run-off

Brazil's answer to Donald Trump came awfully close to scoring a first-round knockout. The far-right's Jair Bolsonaro garnered 46% in Sunday's presidential vote. A former military officer, he's prone to waxing lyrical about the days of the dictatorship and to tirades against women, sexual minorities and Afro-Brazilians.
