Half of Brazilians would like to see interim President Michel Temer stay in the job until the next election in 2018, compared with 32 percent who desire the return of suspended President Dilma Rousseff, according to a Datafolha poll published Saturday on the Folha de S.Paulo website.

The poll, conducted on July 14 and 15, showed just three percent of people are in favor of holding early elections.

Rousseff is currently suspended as her impeachment case is tried in the Senate. A verdict is expected toward the end of August on whether she broke budget laws.
