2024 has been called the year of elections. Half the world’s population will vote in national elections.

pale against ~ : ～に比べるとかすむ
If Trump wins, populist leaders around the world will take it as a sign to do as they please. He won’t strongly support Ukraine against Putin. Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu may be able to ignore world opinion over the brutal military campaign against Gaza.
All elections are important, but the 2024 election in the U.S. may be one of the most important of our young century.
