I have some questions on usage of “carry”.
He carried the election by a whisker.
He won the election by a whisker.
It seems to me that “win” is more used when it comes to elections. However, carry is used like this: “Can Trump carry Michigan again in the 2020 election?”
- Is it natural to say, “He carried the election by a whisker?”
- Can I use a party as a subject like, “The democratic party carried the election by a whisker.”
What do you think of them? Please share your answers.
Thank you in advance,
