A poll released Monday showed members of the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies divided on whether to impeach President Dilma Rousseff. The poll showed 42% favoring impeachment, up slightly from 39% in a similar poll in October, while 31% oppose it, down slightly from 32% in October. While the ranks of those wishing to impeach the chief executive are growing, they are still far below the two-thirds majority needed for impeachment to pass. Poll-takers said the President’s fate was still in the hands of the 27% of members who are undecided. Rousseff faces charges that she abused her powers over the federal budget and allowed corruption in various branches of her administration.
