SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro took a commanding lead over his leftist rival Fernando Haddad in the first election poll looking at voter intentions for the Oct. 28 run-off vote, according to a survey published on Wednesday.

The Datafolha poll showed that Bolsonaro had 58 percent of voter support, compared to Haddad's 42 percent. In Sunday's first-round ballot, Bolsonaro won 46 percent of the vote compared to Haddad's 29 percent.

Datafolha interviewed 3,235 people on Wednesday. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.
