A survey released this Friday (9) by Atlas Intel shows that 47.3% of Brazilians believe that the country “lives under a judicial dictatorship”. The survey interviewed 1,615 people on February 8 and 9, 2024, the same period of repercussion of the Federal Police (PF) mega-operation authorized by the minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Alexandre de Moraes, against former president Jair Bolsonaro ( PL) and allies.

For 16.7% of those interviewed, the country does not experience a judicial dictatorship, but many judges “commit abuses and exceed their duties”. For another 20.9%, “the judiciary is fulfilling its role correctly”.

In the same survey, 42.2% of respondents believe that the former president “is being unfairly persecuted. Another 46.5% said they believed that Bolsonaro “planned a coup d’état” as the PF suggests.

On another topic, 41.3% said they would not have supported the former president if he had declared a state of siege in the second round of the 2022 elections to take away the powers of the STF.

When asked about a possible arrest of Bolsonaro, 38.2% of those interviewed said they believed in an arrest of the former president. For another 36.4%, Bolsonaro will not be arrested.

Among those interviewed, 39.6% said they supported or sympathized with Bolsonaro and 51.1% said they neither sympathized with the president nor supported him.
