Cliffhanger、in a deadlock、a coin toss 、down to the wire、neck-and-neck、in dead heat、a toss-up

今晚8点左右(北京时间22日上午8点左右)加拿大43届联邦大选将拉下帷幕,在338个选区(338 ridings)中将选出338名国会代表,过半数(170)国会席位的政党将获得组阁权, 组成的政府。 目前参选的6大政党中,自由党和保守党这两大政党领先,但是选情紧张,不分上下, 胜负难分。

目前看来自由党和保守党国会席位都不会过半数,需要跟其他党派联合组阁执政。我个人预测自由党 (Liberal)与新民主党(NDP)会联合组阁,组成少数党政府,自由党党领小特鲁多连任总理。

我这几天在阅读有关这次加拿大联邦大选的报道时,专门留意记者在描述自由党和保守党这两大政党“选情胶着,不分上下, 胜负难分”时用的词语,总结如下:

a coin toss

down to the wire
On the eve of the federal election, the final round of polling suggests it could come down to the wire between the Liberals and Conservatives.

tight polls

neck-and-neck
Throughout the campaign — which kicked off on Sept. 11 — the polls have placed Trudeau and Scheer neck-and-neck, but neither has appeared to coalesce enough support to command a majority government.

a toss-up.
The two are going head to head again for the parliament seat. The results could indicate what happens for the Liberals and NDP nationally. So far, polls indicate that Davenport is a toss-up.

in dead heat,
