Need some help on how to use "in the lead". I came up with several possible valid usages.
Situation 1-- At a high school, two clubs, club A and club B, are trying to get as many students to join as possible. Currently club A has enrolled more students than club B:
Club A is in the lead.
Situation 2-- A referendum will take place soon, concerning whether an geographical area currently part of a sovereign country, should become an independent sovereign country. There are two political groups trying to influence voters. The pro-union group want voters to vote no. The pro-independence group want voters to vote yes. A poll of like voters was recently done, and it shows that there more voters more likely to vote no than yes:
The pro-union group is in the lead.
The no vote is in the lead.
Situation 3-- Suppose there is a soccer match between Team USA and Team France.
At the match are American fans supporting Team USA and French fans supporting Team France. Then, Team USA scored a goal, going up 1-0. The American fans are very happy:
The American fans are in the lead.
Are the four sentences for respective situations (situation 2 has two sentences) okay English?
