Chris Hayes said this one on his MSNBC show on 9/1. discussing the Presidential race. “It is possible for Donald Trump to tighten the gap…” This is a congruent conflation of “narrow the gap” and “tighten the race”, both meaning to make closer. A tip of the toque to Frank King for hearing this subtle one.
