Assunto:  push someone to the top of the ticket
 
Mensagem:  ballot = ticket

pushed to the top of the ticket = ( no contexto ) subiu na preferência; foi empurrada para cima, na preferência popular.

Lula himself emerged from that imbroglio personally untarnished and managed to win re-election in the following year. But it is widely thought to have cost him an outright victory in the first round. Ms Rousseff may not be so lucky. Lula had a year to shake off the stench, whereas this time the incumbent has only a month till polling day. She is already facing a tough challenge from Marina Silva, a popular former environment minister who has been surging in opinion polls since the death in a plane crash three weeks ago of Eduardo Campos, leader and candidate of the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB), pushed her to the top of the ticket. http://www.economist.com/blogs/americasview/2014/09/scandal-brazil
