Idioms: A front-runner

Runner Christina Modlin makes her way down Ohio Drive during the 42nd annual running of the Marine Corps Marathon, traveling on a monumental course through Washington, D.C. and finishing at the Marine Corps War Memorial, Arlington, Va., Oct. 22, 2017. Also known as "The People's Marathon," the 26.2 mile race drew roughly 30,000 participants to promote physical fitness, generate goodwill in the community, and showcase the organizational skills of the Marine Corps.

Un ‘front-runner’ è un atleta o un cavallo che corre meglio quando sta davanti. In un senso più ampio significa ‘il favorito’. Nella politica americana ‘the front-runner’ è il candidato con le maggiori possibilità di vincere le elezioni.

Esempio tratto da Vanity Fair, January 2019: ‘2020 Presidential Election: Is Kamala Harris the new 2020 Front-Runner?’ (Elezioni presidenziali 2020: è Kamala Harris la nuova favorita per il 2020?)
