    It's the punctuation:

    BOW TIE: KEEP YOUR ELECTION PROMISE

    Politicians usually have several proposed policies going into an election - their 'promises'. That the headline talks of one 'promise' suggests that there is some very major issue that predominates in the election ( equivalent in Britain to 'we promise to pull Britain out of the E.U'/ 'to reject adoption of the Euro').

    No.

    They are two different aspects of language.

    If you are trying to make an argument/win a bet: you lose.
