Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Often it was necessary for the Government to walk a tightrope to avoid alienating one side or the other.
walk a tightrope = be on a tightrope = take or be on a very precarious course; figurative mean. be in stays; pol. trim
Thanks for your efforts.

'...take a very precarious course' in this context.
