State elections show a clear trend towards continuity, says political scientist



State elections show a clear trend towards continuity, says political scientist

Of the 20 governors seeking re-election this year, 12 have already reached their goal in the first round (60% of candidates), 6 are still going to run in the second round (30%), and only 2 did not pass and failed. no more chance of being re-elected (10%).

This is a record for first-round re-election in the states (the previous record was in 2010, when 10 governors were re-elected without running in a second round, according to the O Globo newspaper).

20 governors tried to be re-elected:

  • 12 have already passed in 1 round: AC, DF, GO, MA, MG, MT, PA, PR, RJ, RN, RR and TO
  • 6 in the 2nd round: AL, AM, ES, PB, RO and RS
  • 2 were defeated: SP and SC

Political scientist and Arko Advice analyst Carlos Borenstein says the gubernatorial election “shows very clearly a trend towards continuity in state contests.” In his opinion, “this trend can be explained by a number of factors”, but two stand out: the rejection of discourse against politics and the increase in government revenues.

“Return to normal life”

“The first [fator] is that the subversive elections we had in 2018 were very marked by a streak of victories – not only for Bolsonaro, who at the time held an anti-establishment narrative, but also for a number of governors who also followed that narrative,” he said. Borenstein.

The analysis was conducted during InfoMorning, a daily program InfoMoney which on Monday (3) focused on the results of the first round of elections (and its consequences). Watch the program in the video below.

“Now we have a change in this paradigm in 2022, a kind of return to normality,” the political scientist said. “The governors who won the elections in 2018 and are now running for re-election usually operate within traditional politics.”

Borenstein cited the example of Minas Gerais Governor Romeu Zema (Novo), who was re-elected in the first round with 56% of the valid votes. “Even Zema, in Minas, which at that time [2018] elected by speech against the traditional policy of renewal, he created a very strong arc of alliances.”

In addition, 3 other non-governor candidates were also elected in the first round but received the support of the current chief executive: Clecio Luis (Solidariadade) in Amapa, Elmano de Freitas (Portugal) in Ceara and Rafael Fonteles. (PT). ), in Piaui.

SP and SC are exceptions

(PT), who had 35.7% (8.3 million). Tarcisio is a former infrastructure minister under Bolsonaro and Haddad, a former education minister under Lula, and a former mayor of São Paulo.
