LACERDA, Fabio. EVANGELICALS, PENTECOSTALS AND POLITICAL REPRESENTATION IN BRAZILIAN LEGISLATIVE ELECTIONS (1998-2010). Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.93, e329310.  Epub 20-Fev-2017. ISSN 1806-9053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17666/329310/2017.

What is the performance of Evangelical candidates in Brazilian legislative elections? Would Pentecostal candidates be responsible for the political representation of Evangelicals? Do Pentecostal churches have a high degree of electoral success? The Evangelicals influence in Brazilian politics has become increasingly prominent both in the media and in the academia. It is a consequence of the rapid expansion of Pentecostalism in Brazil. Previous literature assumes that Pentecostal candidates would use their congregations as “herd votes”. From a conceptual discussion of the Evangelical candidate and his church linkage, as well as a new database of Evangelical candidates, I present evidence that the share of Evangelical candidates remained stable in the last decade. Pentecostals politicians represent the vast majority of Evangelical politicians in Brazilian legislatures; however, in spite of that, the electoral success of Pentecostal churches is not as strong as it is asserted.

Palavras-chave : Evangelicals; Pentecostals; Candidates; Elections.
