Candidate Ciro Gomes of the Democratic Labor Party was in the third place with 9 per cent of the vote, followed by Tebet of the Brazilian Democracy Movement with 5 per cent.
The data was collected from 5,734 people in 284 municipalities between August 30 and September 1 to capture the nation's reaction to the first televised presidential debate held on August 28 in the city of Sao Paulo.
Brazil will vote on October 2 to elect a new president, vice president, governors, deputies and senators.
