How Brazil's populist president Jair Bolsonaro is losing his evangelical supporters – BBC News



Brazil’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro was elected four years ago, with major support specifically from black evangelical Christian women.

“He is not the type of politician who should govern a country… because he’s disrespectful,” said Tatiana Gonzaga, one young evangelical Brazilian who is leading a movement against Bolsonaro on TikTok.

This October Bolsonaro will run for re-election against the left-wing former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

In 2018, nearly 70% of evangelical Christians voted for Bolsonaro, nicknamed “the Trump of the Tropics” – but this year that support looks like it might be waning.
